Can't do find or page up/down. Only mouse responds on page. Not sure when this stopped working. Loaded newes rpm version of acroread with same result. Mouse access continues to work, but for me the biggest problem is that search (ctrl-f) access is disabled. This worked with default version of firefox installed with fedora 8 but at some point the keyboard access in pdf became disabled. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open a pdf file into firefox 2.Do crtl-f to search, type into search box, or pg dn with keyboard 3.Nothing happens Actual Results: No keyboard response in pdf file with acroread plugin Expected Results: When crtl-f hit, should allow typing in find box. Or when pg up/dn hit page should scroll Possibly an acroread bug but tried two version and actually the 1st version worked at least with fedora 8 as originally installed. Also, possibly a bug in fedora 8? Also, possibly I should have searched bugs for "pdf" but didn't so sorry if this is a duplicate.
Well no additional comments after several months. Possibly it is just me. However, I have the same problem on another fedora 8 installation. My only solution is to uninstall the plug-in file. Now acroread runs stand-alone instead of plugged in to firefox. Actually like this better, so this issue is a feature, not a bug! Now the keyboard works when looking at a pdf.
I have the same problem in Fedora 8.
This is actually an issue with the ndispluginwrapper in Fedora 8: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=432673
As Per wrote, this works around the problem in f8: <quote> Yes, apparently this is hitting the nspluginwrapper bug. I added nppdf* to the IGNORE_WRAP= string in /etc/sysconfig/nspluginwrapper, then ran: mozilla-plugin-config -r mozilla-plugin-config -i Now it works like it's supposed to. <end quote> This indicates it is fixed in f9: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=388961 This firefox bug should be closed and marked as INVALID.
This bug was originally reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.6 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME http://www.mozilla.com http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+mode
No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 3.6.8 or later and a new profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
