I don't have any links because Adobe bug reports are not public.

As for supporting details, I've told you all I know.

I would certainly like somebody else to confirm the issue before it gets
documented on the Wiki.  After all, it could be some sort of idiosyncrasy on
my machine that's causing the issue, rather than something that's going to
affect everyone.
If you showed us some details of the crash, we might be able to tell
If you run Adobe Reader, it crashes right after putting up its window.

That's enough detail for anyone to be able to attempt to reproduce the problem.

If you can reproduce it, then you the details of the crash are almost certainly not going to help you fix it, because there's no debuginfo and Adobe Reader is closed-source.  Sure, it's possible that a sufficiently knowledgeable developer would be able to tell from the crash details what's going wrong in some open-source Fedora component and fix it, but that seems unlikely, and furthermore, if the crash is really caused by a bug in an open-source Fedora component, it seems likely that it'd be affecting at least one other thing besides Reader, in which case it would be easier to debug and fix the issue through that other thing rather than trying to debug through a closed-source application with no debuginfo.

If you can't reproduce the issue, then again, the details of the crash from my end are not going to be particularly useful.

This is why I did not bother to post the crash details here.

Having said all of that, you seem to think that they might be useful, so although I disagree, I will accede to your request:
