PDF view count issues

This only seems to happen in Firefox. Each time I click the "Fullscreen" or "Fullscreen Off" buttons while viewing a PDF, the article_galley.view count is incremented by one. As Ute points out, this shouldn't be happening, as this is essentially just a view change, not a whole new article view.
NB: The "Download PDF" option also increments the view count by 1, but I consider this correct behaviour -- this action is essentially creating a new version of the file that will be viewed separately.
James, this is a PDFObject quirk, not our bug; I'd suggest following up with them (or directing Ute to do the same).
