This seems not to hapen when you start mozilla and then use Acrobat Reader within mozilla for the first time, but any subsequent times this error/bug occurs. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start mozilla and display a PDF file 2.Go on with browsing to any other URL/site 3.Start acrobat reader outside of mozilla and open a document and close it again 4.Browse with mozilla back to a PDF document 5.Try to use the search function of Acrobat Reader Actual Results: You're not able to use the search function of Acrobat Reader 6.0 anymore (to be more precise you don't get any search results) Expected Results: Display search results within the PDF document Acrobat Reader 6.0 was installed with the default settings.
I see this too. Saw it with previous versions also. The Acroread search works fine in IE. Adobe Reader 6.0 Version 6.0.0 19.5.2003 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040803 Windows 2000 SP3
Have been living with this for some time now. Thought it was a acroread problem. But searches do work with acroread embedded in i.e. Have to save the pdf and open it directly in acroread for search to work (or use i.e.). Definintely should be moved from UNCONFIRMED to NEW. Using 1.7.2 moz and 6.0.2 acroread in win2k.
Hey folks, since acroread 7 has been released, can you give that a try and see how it works?
