User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20040130 Firebird/0.7 I use the acroread plugin (nppdf.so) version 5.08. When I read a PDF file through the browser, the plugin correctly starts acroread. However, CPU consumption is continuously high---close to 100%. This does not occur if acroread is started from the command line. This has bugged me and many others (people now and then post about it on various lists; I suspect many just give up and switch to xpdf) for a long time (over a year). Some people have suggested it is due to a bug in GTK2, so I've tried to recompile mozilla-firebird using GTK. This makes the bug go away, supporting the idea of a GTK2 problem. Could you please isolate the problem and either make the GTK people fix it upstream, or find a workaround? Any hints about what I could do myself (patch; other version of GTK2 etc) would be much appreciated. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install the packages ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/dists/stable/main/binary-i386/acroread-debian-files_0.0.5_all.deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/dists/stable/main/binary-i386/acroread-plugin_5.08-woody0.1_i386.deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/dists/stable/main/binary-i386/acroread-plugin_5.08-woody0.1_i386.deb on a Debian system. 2. Read any PDF document in the browser. 3. Look at a CPU meter. Actual Results: The CPU meter shows 100% usage. Expected Results: The CPU meter should show moderate usage while not manipulating the acroread window.
