PDF handling is broken (and dangerous)

The Adobe PDF plugin does not obey the docShell.allowPlugins attribute. It could be because the pdf load
creates a new docshell. This requires investigating.

Also, the collaboration IP leak issue discovered by Goldy should probably be reported to Adobe as well,
and perhaps a workaround can be introduced by chopping up pdf link requests (though this is likely to
get very tricky).

Turns out the pdf is still able to make a network connection in some cases before we kill it. In other cases it hangs...
