Description George Karabin 2008-06-20 15:58:04 UTC
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:  100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit in firefox

Actual results:

The pdf file renders outside of the firefox window, with no window manager
titlebar to grab onto. On my machine, it renders the file at about 1/4 of my
screen size. When I close the pdf via evince's file menu or killing the process

Expected results:

I'd expect the pdf file to render cleanly in an embedded firefox pane, or, if
there's some problem with how the lauterbach site is serving the file, display
an error, or otherwise not paint junk to my screen.

Additional info:

I don't know if this is an evince issue or a firefox issue, or something in the

I think that something may have been corrupt in an evince process that was
already running in the background. I did have other documents opened in other
windows. After killing that evince process, the document began embedding properly.

Thanks for letting us know. I couldn't reproduce it anyway -- just File/Save
As... window jumped on me asking where to store the PDF file.

Anyway, closing as NOTABUG.
