Browser lock up when downloading pdf with invalid helper application
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040316 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040316 http://tax.ohio.gov/individual_forms_income.html Click on one of the PDF forms to download. I tried a few of the IT-1040s at the top. Browser will lock up and not refresh its screen. It works ok with Mozilla 1.6. I just found the problem. I had an acroread helper application that pointed to a file (acroread) that no longer existed. I had installed a new version in another place. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Add a helper application for pdf to open with a program that doesn't exist. 2. Go to http://tax.ohio.gov/individual_forms_income.html 3. Click on form IT-1040 (any of them seem to lock up the browser). 4. It seems that clicking on any pfd file will crash mozilla 1.7b Actual Results: Browser locks up and does not redraw the screen. It has to be killed and restarted. Expected Results: Open up a download window and start downloading the pdf file and then open acroread. Classic theme. Slackware 9.1.
