Use the PDF Viewer. See
What version are you using? 
Is this still happening when updating to the newest Acrobat Reader versions?
Can you provide current crash report ids for this? (bp-xxxxx from about:crashes)

Closing old bugs in the Plugins component. We aren't going to track issues in 3rd-party plugins in the Mozilla bug tracker. In addition, support for NPAPI plugins will be removed at the end of this year; for more details see the post at

If there is a serious bug in Firefox, it needs to be filed in the "Core" product, "Plug-Ins" component.
