I am also anxious about the latest build of chromium: I cannot stop
chromium from opening pdf files automatically.
It defaults to opening them in libreoffice draw, and after uninstalling
draw, GIMP. My default pdf reader is xpdf and I can open any pdfs using
either gimp or xpdf from within xfe once they have been downloaded.

The toggle switch in chromiums settings/advanced/content works for the
choice of opening pdf files or downloading them, but opens them
automatically whichever option is selected.

Furthermore, the option to uninstall the extension
(chrome://extensions) chromium pdf reader is permanently 'on' and
greyed out, and I cannot 'find' the folder anywhere in my system that
the extension reports as its ID in order to delete it.

I have not seen this behaviour before.

Many thanks
