pdf files fail to load using 20090105 nightly on Vista and XP, not sure about linux or Mac. No errors in the console. Test link provided in URL input field
Seems to be caused by bug 466384, backed it out locally and pdfs load again.
Changing procuct and component based on comment #2
As a work-around, you can load PDF files by disabling the Adobe Reader plug-in. This bug only impacts PDF access via the Adobe plug-in.
Created attachment 355589 [details] [diff] [review] workaround I consider this more of a kludge than a proper fix. However, it does restore plug-in functionality without reverting the fix from bug 466384. I do not intend to request review on this patch, nor do I intend to take this bug.
Hello, this bug seems to affect also the Foxit Reader plugin (www.foxitsoftware.com). Trying to display a PDF using this plugin results in an empty page (nothing is displayed). Kind regards.
Yes Gerd, this does affect the newest release of Foxit 3.0 (build 1301) on XP Pro SP3. I cannot open any pdf files within the browser. I just get an empty page.
That's interesting, it's working fine for me - Firefox 3.2a1pre ID:20090106034601 - Foxit 3.0 (build 1301) - WinXP SP2 (note SP2 not SP3)
I take it back, I was not opening files IN the browser Sorry for the spam

Created attachment 355786 [details] [diff] [review] This should fix it
(In reply to comment #12) > Created an attachment (id=355786) [details] > This should fix it Well, I can verify that it builds under both Linux and Windows and fixes all the known regressions from bug 466384.
Great. I'd built it on Mac and tested the quicktime thing there. Plus it's clearly the right thing to be doing. ;) Thank you for testing this! One of these days we'll have some plug-in regression tests, I hope.
