** Also affects: medibuntu
   Importance: Undecided
       Status: New

** Description changed:

  I encountered a standard-compliant site with PDF file embedded which
  hangs my Adobe Reader plugin in Firefox - that is, browser is usable,
  but CPU load is 100% and I'm unable to open another PDF file in Firefox
  until I close the tab where I opened this site...
  I copied the source and deleted as much pure HTML code as I could to make it more clear (it is still standard-compliant and it still doesn't work), here it is:
  I tried a fresh Firefox profile and it still doesn't work; I also tried
  opening it in Opera -- there were no problems with that.
+ I downloaded the official Firefox tarball from Mozilla site and copied
+ there the Adobe Reader plugin (nppdf.so) from Medibuntu, the result was
+ the same.
  Steps to reproduce:
  0) Install Adobe Reader Firefox plugin from Medibuntu, if it's not installed
  1) Open Firefox
  2) Enter the site http://students.mimuw.edu.pl/~mg/launchpad/test.html
  3) Try to open in Firefox another PDF in another tab -- it will not open
  4) Close the tab displaying test.html site -- the second tab should now open PDF properly
  What should happen:
  in point (3) Firefox shouldn't hang, but it should properly open the site with embedded PDF file.
