    Hi all,

    Today, suddenly the Acrobat Reader plugin stopped working. nppdf.so is
    linked to form my firefox plugins directory, and about:plugins tells me,
    amongst others:

    Adobe Reader 7.0

    Bestandsnaam: nppdf.so
    The Adobe Reader plugin is used to enable viewing of PDF and FDF
    files from within the browser.

    MIME-type Beschrijving Achtervoegsels Actief
    application/pdf Portable Document Format pdf Ja
    application/vnd.fdf Acrobat Forms Data Format fdf Ja
    application/vnd.adobe.xfdf XML Version of Acrobat Forms Data Format
    xfdf Ja
    application/vnd.adobe.xdp+xml Acrobat XML Data Package xdp Ja
    application/vnd.adobe.xfd+xml Adobe FormFlow99 Data File xfd Ja

    But if I open a pdf, it gives me a blank tab, the download manager pops
    up and the file is opened in an acrobat window outside of FF.

    Until yesterday, everything worked fine.

    I am on SuSe Linux 10.0, with FF 1.5.0.4. Anybody any ideas what is
    happening?

    TIA, H.

    Anyone? Or are you mad at me for cross-posting between these two
    groups? Sorry, then.
