On our external browser test site, we have a number of examples of PDF embedded in HTML using both an object tag and the embed tag. This is a new regression in Firefox 3 beta 5. This problem does NOT happen in Beta4 and Beta 3. Pretty much every one of them will quickly crash in Firefox with this sequence: 0 - Install the free Adobe Reader from: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html 1 - view the embedded PDF page (see below for some URLs) 2 - go back to a non pdf page 3 - go forward to that embedded pdf again. It seems as if after you view one of the above, Firefox 3 beta 5 is doomed to crash no matter what you do. Here are some pages to try: http://acroeng.adobe.com/Test_Files/embedded/simple-embed.html http://acroeng.adobe.com/Test_Files/embedded/embed2.html http://acroeng.adobe.com/Test_Files/embedded/embedded_big.html http://acroeng.adobe.com/Test_Files/objecttest/obj_test/pdf_in_html.htm http://acroeng.adobe.com/Test_Files/objecttest/firefox_ie_object_tag_forms.html
Works for me, Firefox 2008042305 on Windows XPSP2, Adobe Reader Plugin 8.1.2 I can reproduce the crash in 3.0b5 though, so I think this bug has been fixed in the latest trunk builds, please verify: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/
Yes, it is fixed in the latest trunk. Hooray! Thank you! (We have some very large mutual customers who use PDF embedded in HTML extensively for forms solutions.)
