    acroread crashing as plugin

    opoplawski Community Member

      When I press the back button in Firefox when reading a PDF, acroread generally crashes.  Lot's of errors are logged to ~/.xsession-errors.  I suspect that last one it the critical one:

       

      (acroread:7024): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid uninstantiatable type `<invalid>' in cast to `GObject'

       

      (acroread:7024): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: instance of invalid non-instantiatable type `<invalid>'

       

      (acroread:7024): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_signal_handlers_disconnect_matched: assertion `G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed

       

      (acroread:7024): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid uninstantiatable type `<invalid>' in cast to `GObject'

       

      (acroread:7024): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: instance of invalid non-instantiatable type `<invalid>'

       

      (acroread:7024): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_signal_handlers_disconnect_matched: assertion `G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed

       

      (acroread:7024): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_widget_destroy: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed

       

      Running on Fedora 16 with nspluginwrapper:

       

      AdobeReader_enu-9.4.6-1.i486

      nspluginwrapper-1.4.4-3.fc16.i686

       

      At this point nspluginwrapper is hung too and I cannot read anymore PDFs in Firefox without killing npviewer.bin or restarting Firefox.
