Bug Description

Binary package hint: evince

I have encountered a series of PDFs that have links in them that will not open Evince, but will open in Adobe Reader.

Since the links in the PDFs I have are pictures that are clicked on (as shown in the attached screenshot) I filed this as a bug report separate from bug report #514930.

The cursor turns into a hand when hovering above the link, but clicking does nothing.

Hovering above the link in Adobe Reader has the cursor turn into a hand and the clicking makes a warning appear about opening remote URLs and asking if it should open the link you just clicked on.
