User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Firefox/1.0.7 (Dropline GNOME)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Firefox/1.0.7 (Dropline GNOME)

THe adobe 7 plugin works every time in the first tab of a multi tab session. The
problem occurs when there are no pdf's viewed in the first tab and you open a
pdf in the second or higher tab the pdf fails to display. If a pdf is opened in
the first tab then the later tabs will display the pdfs.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Firefox that has teh adobe 7 plugin and open about 4 tabs
2.In the fourth tab attempt to view a pdf (
http://cs.ua.edu/202/new202FPnotes/FrontPage%201.pdf ,to make it easy)


Actual Results:  
Firefox acts like it loads the pdf, but fails to display it leave a blank canvas
the same color as the border.

Expected Results:  
Displayed the loaded pdf.

If you go back and load a pdf in the first tab, the pdf in the forth tab will
suddenly display. The pdf do not have to be related at all. As long as the Pdf
is in the first tab it works fine close the first tab pdf(ie: by going to a new
page) then the fourth tab will stop displaying again if you refresh it. 

I have found no log messages relating to it on my system.
