Can you look into the file; might be something wrong with the PDF & not the reader. What other PDFs do you have problems with? I just opened a PDF from Intel in Chrome 18.0.1025.152m Win7_64, no issues. – tomByrer Apr 11 '12 at 1:07
@tomByer, there is no issue with the PDF itself, the one shown is the intel spec (link). – soandos Apr 11 '12 at 1:25
1) you are using a different OS and a different version of Chrome. 2) All of them. 3) See comment above for link to an example PDF, 4) As per question, it reads fine if I save it, and open it using Document Viewer 2.30.3. – soandos Apr 11 '12 at 1:37
Then perhaps this should be a question for Chrome's Linux bug report system, not on SuperUser? – tomByrer Apr 11 '12 at 3:43
