Well, we confirmed it crashed ;) Whether it is a bug in LC or Adobe DC 
or not
is another matter.

There was a similar issue a very long time ago with Adobe's PDF plugin - 
it would
cause the browser external to crash if used (we used the system webview 
back then
as we do now)... The Adobe plugin was doing things it shouldn't (I can't 
if we managed to come up with a hack in the browser external to stop it 
or not; or
whether Adobe eventually cleaned up their plugin!)

Warmest Regards,
