ok, to make short a long story (i took a lot of shots while removing
programs and extensions) i could see both pdf's (the one called by your
test.html file and the one in the internet page i mentioned in the bug
report) only after having removed/purged (in the order):
a chromium extension for viewing powerpoint and pdf files (see please

and having installed mozplugger

thanks for your time


p.s. anyway some solution has to be found, imho it is more likely that
one has got installed epdfview and/or acroread than mozplugger!
