Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060202 Firefox/1.5.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060202 Firefox/1.5.0.1

I clicked on the link given above. When the "Open With or Save" dialog box appears, if I choose Open With, it works fine. However, if I choose Save, and then click the Open link on the download manager when the download has finished, the PDF doesn't open.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to given URL
2. Choose Save
3. Wait for download to complete
4. Click "Open" next to the download in the Download Manager

Actual Results:  
Open link goes red and stays red. (Also, an strace -f -p `/sbin/pidof firefox-bin` shows that firefox does not even try to exec anything.)

Expected Results:  
Default PDF app (KPDF) should have been launched.
I get: E-mail Sign-in failed.
Could you give another excample (link in page)?

OK, I changed the URL. This URL also exhibits the bug.

WFM, but I have only Foxit to try not Adobe.
