Subject general/844: Acrobat Plugin and Communicator (fwd)
Date Mon, 14 Jul 1997 02:57:44 GMT
I lost track of the whole acrobat thing.  Is this a new problem, or is
this just the same problem that Adobe wanted us to hack around in an
extremely ugly way and which Roy told them "no, you've had a year to fix
your product, get off your ass" (paraphrased).

There seems to be a problem with Netscape Navigator 4.0 and the acrobat
plugin when trying to view a byte served file.   The first page will
download correctly, but when you try to get the next page, the plugin
and navigator lock up.

Navigator 3.0 has no problems with byteserved PDF files. (works great, BTW)
I know that you look for certain headers from Netscape since they do 
ranges in a non-standard way.  Maybe with 4.0 they changed the headers??

Try byte serving a PDF to Navigator 4.0
Look at the headers from 4.0?%3
