Howdy everyone, having a problem with my adobe plugin for firefox. First off, I suppose I should say that I am a relatively new user of Fedora, using Fedora 16. Windows was increasingly annoying and instead of killing an innocent computer, a new OS solved a lot!
The problem, as in the title, I can view a PDF in Firefox only once, and then not again until I restart Firefox. I seem to view a lot, and I dislike needing to save them all and look at them afterwards, so I view them in the browser. So I have:
[wakko@wakko ~]$ uname -a
Linux wakko 3.2.7-1.fc16.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Feb 21 01:40:47 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Adobe Reader 9.4 Firefox plugin
The problem was searched, one post found helpful, 254605, but the process list hasn't a reference to AdobeReader. Opening a PDF in Firefox results in the PDF loading up, but after closing it and reopening a PDF, it gives a black screen which turns to white after a few seconds, and that's it. If I keep a PDF tab open, there isn't a problem. Anything I am missing?
Oh yeah, although most likely no import to the problem, my computer is:
Gateway MX6428 (bought 5 yrs ago)
AMD Turion(tm) 64 Mobile Technology ML-37 Processor
1 GB RAM
Gallium 0.4 on ATI RS480 Graphics
