1.134. nspluginwrapper

1.134.1. RHBA-2010:0187: bug fix update

An updated nspluginwrapper package that fixes various bugs is now available.
nspluginwrapper is a utility which allows 32-bit plug-ins to run in a 64-bit browser environment (a common example is Adobe's browser plug-in for presenting proprietary Flash files embedded in web pages). It includes the plug-in viewer and a tool for managing plug-in installations and updates.
The nspluginwrapper package has been upgraded to version 1.3.0-8.el5.
This update contains fixes for the following bugs:
* The nspluginwrapper package contained a bug that restricted expected functionality with PDF files viewed in the Firefox web browser. Limitations included the inability to search a PDF document because the Find bar was unable to get focus to enable a user to input a search term and unable to use the keyboard shortcuts F8, Ctrl+Shift+F8 and Ctrl+E. A user is now able to search a PDF document loaded in Firefox and all predefined keyboard shortcuts work correctly. (BZ#435838, BZ#455218)
* When the previous version of the nspluginwrapper package was used with Adobe Flash 10 and Firefox was run from the terminal window, critical error messages would present in the terminal even though the software worked as expected. The error messages do not appear in the terminal window with this latest upgrade. (BZ#466547)
* If the umask of the user that invoked /usr/bin/mozilla-plugin-config was 0077, the files in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/ would be given permissions based on the users umask. This could have lead to the files becoming unreadable. With this package update, nspluginwrapper does not use the umask or group inherited from the invoking user. (BZ#521948, BZ#523814)
Users of nspluginwrapper should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
