User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030529

When opening a pdf (in a new tab) Mozilla appeared to stop responding.  This was
right after upgrading Mozilla 1.4a to Mozilla 1.4RC1.  I tried closing, but
eventually had to end task Mozilla.  After Mozilla was closed I noticed an Adobe
Acrobat "accept license" yes/no dialog.  I clicked yes, and the dialog closed.

When I try to reproduce the issue the pdf opens normally.  I suppose only
'virgin' pdf users will see this error...

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. New install of Mozilla 1.4RC1
2. Open a pdf in a new tab
3. Look for hidden license dialog/you may not be able to minimize Mozilla
because it is not responding...

I can confirm this on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5a)
Gecko/20030606. However, I'm almost sure this is a duplicate of another bug, but
I cannot seem to find it. The problem is that the license window for acrobat
doesn't get focus. You can reach it by alt-tabbing to the acrobat application,
and then confirming the license. This frees up Mozilla.
Ever confirmed: true
I can reproduce this with IE 6.0 SP1 (+ Q813489, Q330994, Q818529) on Win2k SP3.
Acroread issue perhaps?

Still occuring in Moz 1.7a.
Has this been raised with Adobe?
