I use acrobat pro 9.0.0, and was having the same "pdfs seem to open, but I get a blank tab and a blank error box".
Note: Read below before taking any steps.
First I did #1, from <http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Chrome/thread?tid=62ad3939b032b4f9&hl=en>
Solution #1 (didn't work for me)
1. Open C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Acrobat\Browser
2. Select nppdf32.dll and hit Edit/Copy
3. Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\<your username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\Plugins
4. Hit Edit/Paste
5. Restart Chrome.
Solution #2 (WORKS!)
I did all of the above steps to no avail.. same symptoms. Then after reading this thread, I went into the Acrobat internet settings, and my internet connection speed was set to the default of 56kbps. I changed it to LAN, and voila! PDFs now open in Chrome perfectly! Thanks guys for inspiring me to look in Acrobat settings and not just Chrome :-)
I'd like to hear from someone if the second solution works without the first... but I'm not going to break my pdf-feature now that it's fixed :-P.
This just made my day.
