fwiw - I have found the AdobeReader plugin to Firefox far more hostile
than the Flash plugin and the latest versions on i386 seem to be a bit
better behaved. In the past, I have removed the plugin
from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins (nppdf.so) and found that a much better
solution but you need to repeat that each time you install an
AdobeReader update.
