I have had enough random problems with it I have turned it off on all systems
I admin. This includes both Linux and windoze. Too many support calls. ESR
is supposed to be stable. The pdf viewer is not.

IMO the default should be an external pdf viewer until the thing is ready
for prime time, although I guess it is hard to get it tested without making
it the default.
