more options

Hi,

When ever a PDF file is opened in the FF browser, and we hit back button, FF crashes.

Is this a bug? Is there a solution?

It is possible that Firefox can't unload or close the Adobe Reader plugin that is used to embed PDF files in a browser window. You can try to disable the plugin and use the Adobe Reader program instead to see if that helps.
