Hi, I've been experiencing a slightly different problem than Kristian in Firefox V1.0.6 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10). I get a popup error message "Loading of file:///home/whn/.mozilla/firefox/rjvzog4v.default/Cache/81F00279d01 failed. The PDF file is damaged or it is not a PDF file. It could not be repaired" which I understand comes from Adobe Acrobat Reader plugin. I downloaded the nightly build (aka Deer Park Alpha 2)and was not able to figure out how to get the Adobe Acrobat Reader plug-in to work with Deer Park. How do I do this? Having Deer Park Alpha 2 nightly build running Acrobat Reader (not plugin) did work. Hope this helps. Thanks Bill
