The Firefox PDF engine is new, and PDF is complex.  Hence, Firefox PDF 
still has problems.

This is almost certainly not the right list to get this fixed.  This 
belongs in Mozilla's bug database.

If it used to work right in a past version, you need to be able to show 
that.  If it works on other platforms, or in later versions not yet 
available on CentOS, you need to show that instead.  If it doesn't work 
right in any current version of Firefox, then what you probably need to 
file is a request for enhancement, rather than a bug report, since 
Firefox probably isn't implementing every last legal behavior defined in 
the PDF spec.

Unfortunately, you're going to have a tough time getting any developer 
attention on this, since PRE articles are behind a paywall.  That leaves 
you without a ready testcase.

You support computers.  How does it work when someone comes up to you in 
your professional capacity and says "when I do X, it does Y", but then 
refuses to let you watch while they do X?
