the tab, firefox fails to reap the acroread process when it exits. Opening
another pdf file fails - nothing is displayed.

1. Open firefox (with the acroread plugin installed) to some page.
2. Open a new tab and open a pdf file in this tab.
3. Close the tab with the pdf file using the tab's close (X) icon and wait
about 30 seconds for the acroread process to exit.
4. ps shows acroread in the zombie state.
5. Opening a pdf file in firefox now fails - nothing is displayed.

Actual Results:
Firefox can't open pdf files with the acroread plugin.

Expected Results:
Firefox should be able to open pdf files with the plugin.
