In the past I have had no problem with opening pdfs in Chrome. The Chrome reader has always been disabled and Adobe Reader enabled. Recently pdfs wouldn't open, so I tried using the built in Chrome Reader. I get a box open saying loading but nothing ever happens.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Reader, with the result that the Chrome Reader was enabled and the newly installed Adobe Reader Disabled. PDFs opened with the Chrome reader, all good. Disabled Chrome Reader, enabled Adobe Reader, nothing opened! Switched back again, nothing opened. Repeated the uninstalling/reinstalling, worked fine using Chrome Reader, thought I'd just leave it like that. On next attempt to open a pdf, in chrome, it wouldn't work!! Anyone have any ideas?
OS is windows 7, OS, all browsers and Adobe Reader up to date. Pdfs open fine in Firefox, IE9 and Opera. Admittedly Safari is a bit iffy but works fine in Safari on an iPad.
Hope someone has a magic wand, I know others who have a problem opening pdfs in Chrome too, but don't know if their problems are the same.
