When a pdf file is loaded by the acrobat plugin in gtk-embedded mozilla, whether in galeon or TestGtkEmbed, the plugin refreshes continuously and very slowly, taking 10 seconds or so do a full refresh and then starting again. This renders the plugin unusable. In full mozilla-the-browser, this behaviour is not observed. Steps to reproduce: 1) Have acrobat and plugin installed and verified to work in mozilla-the-browser 2) Browse to the given url with TestGtkEmbed 3) Watch bad things happen.
Sorry, that's gtk2 embedding only. gtk1 embedding does not show this problem.
Summary: Continuous slow refresh makes acrobat plugin unusable in gtk embedding → Continuous slow refresh makes acrobat plugin unusable in gtk2 embedding
Well, this bad behaviour is no longer reproduceable. As the bug was never confirmed from within mozilla.org and no explicit fix was recorded, I'm closing as WORKSFORME.

I'm certainly seeing this behaviour with galeon 1.3.3. Are you using newer (CVS) versions of either Mozilla or Galeon that makes this problem go away?
This bug looks like it depends on #198954. galeon-bin hogs all the CPU time when viewing a .pdf file with the acrobat plulgin, just as mozilla does. The continuous redraw/refresh seems to be characteristic of gtk-embedded mozilla only, however, as regular mozilla does not exhibit this behavior.
