When clicking on a pdf link in my Chrome browser, a separate tab opens and the pdf image flashes on the screen briefly before disappearing and leaving an empty page. Chrome is up to date as is my Mac with Snow Leopard. What's happening here?

Do you have Adobe PDF Reader (or some other PDF reader) installed? IIRC, OS X uses Preview by default to display PDFs, but this is overruled if you have a real PDF reader. Maybe you have one but it's broken?

No, I have just Preview but that doesn't respond to the pdf or is there something I should do to get it to respond?
