Are you using Acrobat Reader?  Update to latest version of Reader.

If you resize the empty box, will PDF file show?  If that works, this was suppose to be fixed in an earlier version of Chrome.

Some pdf links open up a new tab with the address of the pdf file with an empty page. Then adobe acrobat opens with an error box. I cant resize the window with the error box. When I "OK" the error box, the acrobat window closes and Im left with an empty tab.

The PDF link in Reader 9.3+ should open in a new Acrobat window or browser window.  Check the preferences menu in Reader to see if open in browser is selected.
