The reason lies when such PDFs are actually instructed from the server-side to download to your hard drive rather than open in-browser. There was an add-on in the Chrome Web Store that supposedly stopped these PDFs from downloading forcibly, but it no longer works.
Barring a poor internet connection , this usually occurs due to conflicting third-party extensions or malicious browser-targeted code on your PC. So, let's see how you can get Chrome back to normal.
To determine if this the cause of the issue, try working in Incognito mode. Doing this launches Chrome with all extensions disabled. To do that, point to More Tools on the Chrome menu, and then click Extensions.
Once you comes across the problematic plugin, consider removing it or keeping it disabled when using Chrome in normal mode. Clean Your Computer If the problem occurs even in Incognito mode, then there might be malware hidden away on your PC that interferes with the browser's basic functions.
It should take a while for Chrome to detect and clean up your PC.
You may find various instances of missing images, weird-looking text, or laggy scrolling on certain PDFs — and rarely, on all documents that you open. However, running through the following fixes should make Chrome display PDFs properly.
Afterward, check if you still encounter issues when viewing PDFs. Clear Web Browser and Cookies An outdated web cache is another common reason for incorrectly rendering or malfunctioning PDFs, especially if the cache gets corrupted or certain web elements change subsequently later on. Hence, clearing all locally cached data should prompt the browser to download fresh content and hopefully render your PDFs properly. Note: The following procedure also deletes browser cookies. Hence, you need to manually sign back in to whatever sites that you are currently logged into afterward.
Did that work? If not, let's see what's on the cards next.
