    Are you experiencing issues with opening Internet PDF Files in Google Chrome? The problem may be intermittent or constant and may result in a blank page or an error.

    None for me and I am doing PDF's constantly. Now I am using Acrobat Professional here at the office and FoxIt at home, not Acrobat reader.....

    I just downloaded Google Chrome(5.0.375.99) and had problems viewing PDF files until I downloaded the Google Docs and PDF files download for Google Chrome.


    Running Windows 7-32bit.

    Have Chrome 5.0.375.99 beta/Adobe Reader 9.3.3/Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

    Have occasional glitches viewing PDF from Chrome. Downloading and viewing from Reader directly or viewing from IE has no problem. Mostly corrupt or missing pictures but also missing entire pages. Viewing PDFs from Google Docs have no problem.

    Occasionally have issues... But to be honest, I'm an Adobe-hater. What a clunky product suite.

    My issues are all with Chrome & PDF. Internet Explorer works fine.

    Google Chrome seems to be aware there is a problem and they have suggested some fixes, but nothing that definitively works.

    You can't really complain as the Google Chrome I am using is Beta and I haven't tried the ultimate fix yet... uninstall and reinstall Adobe Reader.

    And Windows?
    Or have you tried Chrome on other platforms too?

    Had an issue with copy and paste so I downloaded Google Chrome 6.0.472.0 dev.Copy and Paste issues are now gone,you have to highlight the object then click on on the wrench in the upper right side of browser to Copy and Paste,a little different but so far I like it very fast.

    Windows 7-32bit.

    So a more appropriate title would be "Google Chrome & Windows 7 PDF Issues". :p

    I'm using Chrome beta 6.0.466.0 and have variable results, so I didn't vote.

    E.g., the HR24 "second look" opens and displays just fine, but the HR24 "first look" only shows the left-hand page and gives me an error on the right-hand page ("problem reading the document").

    I just tried some sample IRS forms and they open up just fine.

    There's a Chrome beta 6.0.472.0 out now. You can find it here.

    Just installed it, and it solves the problem I had with the HR24 "first look", above.

    Everyone should have to suffer as you do, right?

    I reverted back to XP on my laptops. All I do is browse, use Office and play media files on them, and Chrome under XP really flies.

    Steve took your lead on this and installed the new version... will see what happens.

    Thanks

    This Chromium developer's blog says the goal is to make PDF rendering within Chrome as seamless as HTML rendering, but that rendering "quality" was still a work in progress, at least as of 6/17.

    Is there any way to change the Zoom level for PDF pages with this version of Chrome? The pages display fine but I can't read it because it is too small.
