Topic: World wide web link action URL length
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 92510

Added a World wide web link action to a button in the PDF. Length of the URL for that link is more than 250 characters because I was trying to submit lot of parameters to the server by adding it to the URL.

When we click on the button Netscape browser opens a blank window and I get the following error message from Acrobat Reader "An error occured while trying to communicate with the browser".
This happens only when Netscape browser is invoked, but it works fine with IE.
I tried acrobat reader 5 and 6 with Netscape 6.2 & 7.1, error is pretty much consistent with all combinations.

When the URL length is less than 234 characters, it works fine with netscape & IE. Even if it exceeds by one character I face the problem with Netscape.
Any help on this is highly appreciated
