I have recently started to use Google Chrome again and noticed that it was having difficulties with opening pdfs. (I'm reading scientific journals) When I click on the link to open the pdf, it would just display a blank page.
Things I tried
refreshing the page. (f5, pressing the refresh button) - although sometimes, it will open
reinstalling Chrome (v5), upgrading to Beta and dev channels (now on Version 6.) same problem in all versions.
reinstalling adobe reader
disabling the adobe reader plugin then re-enabling it.
However, I did stumble upon a fix which is to resize the window.
After I restore and maximize the window, pdfs are displayed. but this is rather annoying having to constantly resize my windows to open a pdf.
