Problems with viewing stored pdf's began immediately following Firefox 
crash due to attempting to print a pdf from the referenced web site.

This also caused problems with Nautilus, which crashed spectacularly 
when I attempted to access a subdirectory in which some pdf's were 
stored.  On recovery, I could use Nautilus to access all but the 
contents of that one subdirectory; access attempts caused Nautilus to 
"freeze".  Nautilus sometimes would display the subdirectory with no 
contents, other times with the correct contents.  ls (in a term) showed 
all the expected files and directories in place and statuses looked OK.  
Nautilus was happy after I rm-ed all but one of the pdf's.

be printed.  Firefox reports that it can't find a program to display the 

The referenced website has been used satisfactorily by a friend for some 
time.  But, she could not print two pdf's from her PowerBook G4 (PowerPC 
processor, OS X -- using AOL, not Safari), so she asked me to try, with 
the results reported.  Could be a virus or a trojan.  AOL on the Mac 
didn't crash, just wouldn't print the files.
