Besides, if I kill one embedded acroread, all others also die. If I try to define an external PDF viewer in Preferences, Mozilla tells me: "Mozilla can handle this type internally. For such types, a Helper Application will only be invoked if the server request external handling." In my opinion it's completely unacceptable that Mozilla claims to know better than me, the user, how to display my PDF files. If the developers of Mozilla prefer to view their PDFs embeddedly, fine. Their choice. But please let me make my own choices. Note that I already googled, found the workarounds which try to force Mozilla to stop embedding acroread, but none worked for my und Linux. (I'm not root on my machine.) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
