Google Chrome 68, which has recently added Emoji option to right click menu to access Windows 10 Emoji Picker, has PDF display problems on Mac. Mac users using Chrome’s built-in PDF viewer are seeing the white screen or blank page for PDF files. PDF document appears fine when the user switches to another tab and returns to the PDF file open tab. Affected users have also noticed PDF appearing as blank when they scroll.

Meanwhile, the issue can’t be reproduced on the Canary version of Chrome which is on version 70. Google has acknowledged this issue and is on its radar, we’re not sure when the Chromium team will ship the fix the Canary has, to this issue to affected Chrome.
