I have the same problem when I embed evince onto firefox using
mozillapluger. I found this is because evince snuffles file type according
to the filename extension, but web plugins get web contents in a temp file
one working around is add xpdf as the first option at
repeat noisy swallow(Xpdf) fill: xpdf -g +9000+9000 "$file"
repeat noisy swallow(evince) fill: evince "$file"
repeat noisy swallow(kpdf) fill: kpdf "$file"
