How can I enable the PDF bar in Google Chrome?

I can view my PDF files, but recently I can't use all the buttons such as Save, Print... my bar disappeared.

Recent Google Chrome update (8.x) introduced Google's own PDF viewer and it's enabled by default. They say it is more secure and always up-to-date, but it does lack some functionality.

You can disable the plugin by visiting about:plugins or chrome://plugins page and choosing to disable the Chrome PDF Viewer plugin. Which, at least for me, reverted the handling of PDFs to the pre-update state.
