[CentOS] AR 9.3+ vs. savable fill-in PDFs on CentOS

I've tried reporting this to Adobe, but they are remarkably deaf to
such an enormous market of free software users.

At least as of AR 9.3, including the latest 9.3.1, I have been unable
to view or work with the savable fill-in PDFs that I've pulled off the
web in the last couple of months.  I have no trouble at all with them
in my Windows virtual machine, but the Linux version starts up,
displays the window/frame outline, then crashes and dies silently.

Since Adobe doesn't provide any useful channel of communications for
support to users of its free products, even though they are
essentially ubiquitous and somewhat essential (for things like this),
apparently their recent breakthrough in the area of supporting Linux
systems does not include actually supporting Linux systems users.

So, since I have made that enormous leap of logic, I wonder, is anyone
else experiencing this problem?

Yes, I know all about evince - use it most of the time, but it does
not handle the fill-in PDFs or the ones where you can save the
filled-in values.

Any other options?

Thanks.
