Steps to reproduce:

Viewed PDF from web site as usual.

Actual results:

I clicked the link to the PDF which loaded this page:


NoScript blocked the load of the PDF, showing only a placeholder.
At that point I downloaded the PDF though my download manager, directly.
Again the PDF had not actually loaded at that point.

Then I clicked the placeholder & the PDF loaded within my browser window, via the Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape  From there I saved a copy of the PDF (through Adobe Reader, Save function) to my disk.

Both copies compared exactly & displayed as expected & are the same as is displayed in my browser window.

MD5 hash of the PDF (538,575 bytes):  eaa236f7fa4a07139bfb58a84e0129bd

Very strange. Running the same version of Adobe Reader (I updated to be sure) and the latest seamonkey we start out the same with NoScript placeholder. However, when I allow the pdf to display by clicking the placeholder Reader displays its blue progress bar and then leaves town. the progress bar just freezes about 10% in to the download and no pdf displayed. Under firefox everything works perfectly.

Okay, it was hanging because seamonkey was not displaying the initial Adobe install license agreement screen. Now that it would of way, all is well. Possibly it was the previous version of Acrobat Reader that was the problem. However, it showed as current. I had to retrieve and install the newer version.
