Hi Caitlin,

Adobe Acrobat has logged this bug yesterday and the response is awaited on urgent basis as Acrobat’s customer who are on Firefox browser version 68.0.1 on mac will get affected. Their PDF conversion workflow from Acrobat Firefox addin will stop working.

Request you to take this on priority.

Subject: FW: Regarding Firefox Web Extension and Mozilla's Roadmap

Hi Caitlin,

Starting Firefox 68.0.1, we have encountered an issue with Acrobat extension for Firefox on Mac.
Issue is Native host application that is launched by Firefox extension as child process is unable to send Apple events to it’s client application Acrobat.
This has resulted into extension failing to convert webpages to PDF as the conversion is taken care of by Acrobat(which never receives the apple event/conversion-request data).
Firefox 68.0 works fine, the break is introduced in Firefox 68.0.1.
We have logged a bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1570581 too.
Can you please take this query to right contact in Mozilla and help get this resolved.
