Back in April I blogged about an issue I found with the Chrome browser where the Flash Player debugger wasn't working properly. That post has received a number of views and has helped a few folks get around the issue. I recently ran into a similar issue where viewing PDF files in Chrome caused the following screen to display. NOTE: I believe this issue only pertains to the dev channel version of Chrome.
Somewhere along the way Chrome has added it's own PDF viewer plug-in that has taken over the browser. Fortunately, fixing this issue is just as easy as fixing the Flash Player debugger issue. I want the Preview application on Mac OS X to be used for PDF's instead of Chrome's default plug-in. To make this happen you open Chrome's plug-in preferences window (Preferences - Under the Hood - Content Settings (button) - Plugins - Disable individual plug-ins (text)) and disable the Chrome PDF Viewer. After making this change everything should be back to normal.
