Why can’t I open PDF documents when using Google Chrome?

Google Chrome, by default, turns on its’ own PDF viewer plug-in.  This plug-in does not render PDF’s properly. However, these PDF’s work fine if you disable the default plug-in:

  1. Type “chrome://plugins” in the chrome browser/URL bar.
  2. Disable Chrome PDF Viewer
  3. Check “Always Allow” for the Adobe Reader.
    (If Adobe Reader is not present, please download the Adobe plug-in for Chrome. It can be found on Adobe’s website)
  4. Close the browser tab and try to re-open the PDF again.
