1. Install Acrobat Reader 8 RPM from Adobe.  You may find that
install_browser_plugin goes into an infinite loop while the RPM is installing. 
Adobe knows about this bug and it's supposedly fixed in the next release.  In
the meantime, to work around it:

  a. Run "killall -STOP install_browser_plugin".
  b. Load /opt/Adobe/Reader/8/Browser/install_browser_plugin into an editor,
find the line with "head -10" on it, and remove the "| head -10" from the pipe.
  c. Run "/opt/Adobe/Reader8/Browser/install_browser_plugin -silent -global
-user /opt".
  d. Run "killall -9 install_browser_plugin".
  e. The RPM installation should proceed to completion.

2. Add to /etc/sysconfig/nspluginwrapper, and then run
mozilla-plugin-config -r to make sure that it's really uninstalled
(nsplugginwrapper is broken right now in Rawhide and won't be able to display
Adobe Reader files in any case; I'll file a separate bug about that).

2. Remove your pluginreg.dat file to make sure you're not using cached plugin

3. Start firefox.

4. Browse to a PDF file.  Note that it correctly opens with Adobe Reader inside
a firefox window.

5. Close the window with the PDF file in it.  Note that there is now a phantom
window on your screen with no window decorations that you can't get rid of.

6. Closing firefox makes the window go away.

I have pretty much all current Rawhide packages, including
