Very noticable as I am using a dial up connection. Mike Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
> Very noticable as I am using a dial up connection I doubt the speed hit is related to downloading the data. It is probably a rendering issue to do with the plugin. What happens on mozilla? I don't think this is likely to be a firebird bug.
Happens here too (but only sometimes) with allmost every Firebird version so far on Win XP and Acrobat Reader 6 I've noticed that Firebird uses 99% CPU and so the Acrobat Plugin cant load as fast as on other Browsers. it often helps to set Firebirds Priority a little bit lower, so the PDf Plugin can load
Tested on 20040102 Firebird/0.7+ on WinXP. I loaded various PDFs in Firebird and IE and found no significant difference in load times (starting each time with Acrobat completely closed). The CPU spike mentioned in comment 2 occurs with IE as well (see also bug 215323). From this I must say that loading PDFs WFM.
The Acrobat plugin does load PDFs slowly in Mozilla Firebird, but that's not a browser problem. -->INVALID On a side note, tho, see this MozillaZine thread for a suggestion on how to speed it up: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=20055
