Question iceweasel tryes to start acroread?

When I start firefox from the commandline I got the following message:
sh: acroread: command not found

I googled on acroread and found out it's a blogreader from adobe. But why the hell is my iceweasel trying to start it? And what can I do about this little annoing message?

firefox 3.0.6

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009061212 Iceweasel/3.0.6 (Debian-3.0.6-1)

Check the plugins in your browser..

Tools -> Addons -> plugins

Disable the adobe plugin and try again see if the issue goes away.


acroread, firefox, iceweasel
