Crash when closing a window displaying a PDF Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

In the latest OW build:

Product: OmniWeb-5.7
Tag: OmniWeb-5.7-v621
Date: 2008-04-04 16:33:51 -0700

I've been able to reproduce the following crash fairly regularly:

1. Open a PDF on the Web in OmniWeb. For example:

which is loaded by clicking the "Learn More >" link on the following page:

2. Click the Save icon in the floating pallet to save the PDF to disk. PDF is saved.

3. Click the Close (red) button to close the window containing the PDF.

OmniWeb quits unexpectedly, displaying Crash Catcher dialog.

I submitted a crash report after this problem occurred again earlier today.

Note also that, with certain PDFs, clicking the Save icon in step 2 can occasionally produce a crash.

I experienced a second incident of this bug today:

1. Displayed a PDF in OW by clicking the "View PDF" link on this page:


2. After reading the PDF, I closed the OW window containing the PDF by clicking the close (red) button in the upper-left corner of the window.

Result: OW crashed.

I again submitted a CrashCatcher report.
You seem to use the Adobe plugin for PDF viewing? I don't have any red button to close the window. I use the WebKit builtin PDF viewer and cannot reproduce the crashes.

Best regards,
