Description

17 years ago
On trunk build 0221, mac only

Manually add the 'pdfviewer' plugin to the 6.x plugins folder 
Launch browser, and type "about:plugins" in url bar
Observe that the plugin's description says "Embedded JVM" which is wrong

Expected: The plugin description should say "Portable Document Format" like in 
4.x

Shrir, can you try this with ONLY the PDF plugin.

If it's blank, like mine, then it could be the fact that we aren't setting a 
string to null

Peter,
yes, the description is blank (with only the pdfviewer plugin inside the plugins 
folder)

This looks kinda like a bug in the resource fork of the plugin. It has a null 
string for "Name" and I think that's screwing everything up.

Arun,

If you have a chance to chat with any Adobe folks, that in their browser plugin 
for the Mac resource fork, their name field is empty.

In any case, we should handle this correctly anyway

No, it works. It's just the Acrobat plugin on Mac doesn't have the right 
resource fork entry and we screw up on that.

I have not seen this for quite some time. Marking WORKSFORME. If anyone see
this, please re-open. Also note what plugins you had in your System Internet
Plugins and also local Netscape folder plug-ins folder.
