When viewing pdf files in Google Chrome on OSX Lion, certain PDFs do not render properly. Namely, when there are ligatures (an fi combination or a ff combination) the two letters are replaced with a small white box, as if the font could not be found. When I download the same PDF and view it in Preview, it renders just fine.

Is there a way to fix this rendering issue? Do I have to install some font or something?

Could you provide an example PDF? –  Daniel Beck Sep 13 '11 at 6:22

It seems to be this issue: code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=59338 –  dsg Sep 13 '11 at 20:49
    
I don't even get a box, Just blank spaces where they should go. (and this is on the Windows version of Chrome.) –  bames53 Feb 24 at 21:06
