I no longer get bookmarks to find a page when using google pdf. I reinstalled google and this does not help.

Google Chrome version (type about:version into the address bar):Operating System:Error Message:Extensions installed:
Please describe your question/comment in detail (for example, steps to reproduce the problem):
 
I am using Google Chrome 8.0.552.215
 
For example I now have to scroll to find page 37 in this pdf file: http://www.aristokraft.com/includes/pdfs/specs/Organization%20solutions.pdf
 
This was not the case last week. I used to get a side bar with thumbnails to find that page much faster.

Hi Timmy 42
 
I don't want to disable the pdf viewer, I just want to it to show thumb nails on the side. This really helpful on large pdf files with an index so that you can go to page 243, for example.. By the way, I get the same problem with my home and work computers.

This will disable the chrome pdf viewer and go back to your previous program,(probably adobe) which has the feature you are talking about

OK, I am trying to do this but don't know what you mean. Do I click on the wrench on the upper right? What do I do next?
 
Thanks,

I found how to do that by going to options and content settings but did not help because it goes it to another pdf viewer without thumb nails on the side. If I save it to my computer and open it with Adobe Reader 9.2 then it works. It seems like there should be a more direct way and will let you know if I find it.

The Thumbnails are an essential tool with Adobe Reader, especially with large documents.
 
After I disabled Chrome PDF Viewer, I found that I could not open pdf files in Adobe Reader automatically. I was asked were I wanted to save the file, which I did not want to do. I only wanted to open it with Thumbnails!!!!!!
 
Google should introduce thumbnails with Chrome PDF Viewer.

I went to:
- "Options";
- "Under the Bonnet";
- "Content Settings" under Privacy;
- Clicked on "Plug-ins";
- Clicked on "Disable individual plug-ins...";
- Then disabled "Chrome PDF Viewer" AND enabled = Adobe Reader 9 - Version: 9.4.1.222
Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape "9.4.1".
 
I now get the thumbnails. My previous post was before I enabled "Adobe Reader 9" as above. The fact that the "Adobe Reader 9 - Version: 9.4.1.222
Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape "9.4.1"" mentioned Firefox and Netscape put me off enabling it the first time around.

To: bvr379 posted 12-18-10 I finally got around to following your directions. Thank you so much, it is now much easier to look through a 360 page pdf file that I am using.
 
Thanks again,
