Default Acroread Plugin vs. Fedora-8 and Firefox-2

Jonathan Ryshpan wrote, On 03/15/2008 05:16 PM:

When a PDF page is displayed via the Acroread plugin in Firefox, the
(sub) window containing the displayed PDF info never gets focus. This
makes it impossible, among other things, to search the PDF using the
Acroread search function. If I save the PDF to a file and then display
it using acroread, the window gets focus in the normal way and search
works perfectly.

What is going on? How can this be fixed?

Thanks - jon

Had same problem. Filed this bug in firefox:

Found out it is actually a fedora bug. This works around the bug:

I added nppdf* to the
IGNORE_WRAP= string in /etc/sysconfig/nspluginwrapper, then ran:
mozilla-plugin-config -r
mozilla-plugin-config -i

It is reported to be fixed in f9 but above work-around still needed for
f8. Seems to be working for me now in f8.
