I am finally found able to reproduce it.


Here is the reason (probably another bug in nspluginwrapper):

I have had installed Adobe Reader 8 RPM from Adobe web, then degraded to
acroread 7 from SuSE repository.

It installed several "random" instances of nppdf.so, including
/root/.mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so and /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/nppdf.so (but no
/usr/lib/browser-plugins/nppdf.so), and never purged it after removal.

nspluginwrapper seems to recycle plugins in /root/ for public use, which is
incorrect and causes failure:

*** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: /root/.mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so: cannot open
shared object file: Permission denied

After applying a work-around:
chmod og+rx /root

It failed again, but on reader level reporting version clash: plugin version 8,
reader version 7.

After removing /root/.mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so it works again.
