I'm having a strange problem with embedding xpdf into Firefox. While it embeds without issue, none of the buttons in xpdf work until I open up a sidebar first. Once I've done that everything works correctly. I've looked for log files, but haven't found anything that describes what I'm seeing. I've checked /var/log/messages and ~/.xsession-errors.

Firefox version: 3.6.8-r1
Mozplugger version: 1.14.0-r1
xpdf version: 3.02-r4

This is my configuration from mozpluggerrc
application/pdf:pdf:PDF file
application/x-pdf:pdf:PDF file
text/pdf:pdf:PDF file
text/x-pdf:pdf:PDF file
#       ACROREAD()
#       repeat noisy swallow(kpdf) fill: kpdf "$file"
        repeat noisy swallow(Xpdf) fill: xpdf -g +9000+9000 "$file"
#       repeat noisy swallow(okular) fill: okular "$file"
#       repeat noisy swallow(epdfview) fill: epdfview "$file"
#       GV()
#       repeat noisy fill exits: evince "$file"

The only other way I've found to work around this issue is to remove the swallow() option. However, that pretty much defeats the purpose of using mozplugger in my opinion.
Creating usernames when you're
in a creative slump is a bad idea
because if you are when you do
then you end up with uninspiring
alphanumeric cocktails like the
one directly above.
