A subject line like
chromium: "missing plugin" error trying to view some PDFs
would have done nicely. :) No harm done.

No, I was just trying to get a sense of what happened before figuring
out how to fix it.
As I see it now, there are a few bugs involved:
1) chromium should Suggests: mozplugger.
2) The README.Debian should mention mozplugger.
3) The behavior when plugins are missing is unhelpful and confusing,
as discussed at <http://bugs.debian.org/599110>. When chromium
does not know how to render an object, it would be best if it
could give a hint to find packages that can help it.

What is correctly? Could you send a screenshot?
