    Default Can't open PDF documents

    If I click on a pdf doc in a web site Chrome always gives me an error message. To open a PDF I always have to download it and then open it which takes long.

    Is there a way to get Chrome to open a PDF if I click the link?

    Default Chrome vs. Acrobat Pro

    This blog post solved my similar issue. Turns out that Chrome doesn't play nice with the full Pro version of Adobe Acrobat (at least, not version 9).

    Was having the same problem (save to temp directory then open). I updated Foxit (Windows 7 64) and now pdfs are opened in a new tab as they should.
