  1. Acrobat Pro DC's AcroRd32.exe may not close when loaded through the ActiveX PDF Reader object

    One of our clients is experiencing issues with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. We have an Internet Explorer/ActiveX application in which a user can view PDF files through Internet Explorer's 'Adobe PDF Reader' ActiveX control.

    When the user closes the control, Acrobat DC's AcroRd32.exe will close a moment later. If the user opens another PDF document too quickly after closing the first one, this new instance of AcroRd32.exe will not shut down properly even after closing the control.

    Adobe Reader DC does not have this issue, but there it appears related to the 'Enable Protected Mode at startup' checkbox under 'Security…

  4. Bug: Valid JPEG inside PDF fails to decode in Acrobat DC

    Bug: The attached PDF file has a perfectly valid JPEG image (1200x1600 RGB, progressive), but Acrobat DC reports "There was an error while reading a stream." Every other application can display the PDF fine (Dropbox, Microsoft Edge, PDF Expert, Google Chrome, etc). If the JPEG stream is extracted to a .jpg file byte for byte, every viewer can display it. I don't know what causes Acrobat to fail to decompress (DCTDecode).

  5. Chrome OS access

    Make the product compatible with Chrome OS. I recently became one of the victims of Microsoft's forced updates of Windows 10 crashing my laptop - and it did so in a manner that seems to have corrupted the data so badly, I can't even get into safe mode via a successful command prompt. After 2 weeks, and no real assistance from Microsoft (they had the nerve to try to get me to pay them for a new version of Windows 10 - not going to happen) that I really don't intend to go back onto a Windows platform anytime soon.…

  7. Please fix this annoying bug

    I constantly get the attached error message/demand for "confidential information" both from the browser plug-in and from Acrobat, proper. Selecting "Always Allow" does not provide a lasting fix, only a temporary salve that work for a short period that somewhat, but not exactly, coincides with a particular Acrobat or browser session.
