I am seeing Silverlight, the Chrome Remote Desktop Host, and the Native Client plugin under there.  The problem occurs even if the print dialog is closed (I am not sure it wasn't occurring before it was open) or if the tab that had it was closed, or if you close and reopen the plugins tab... etc.

Mine is also a lowercase "pdf" instead of "PDF".

Flash, Java, the Remote Desktop Client plugin, Adobe Reader, and the REAL PDF plugin are all in their proper groups.

24.0.1312.5 Dev, Windows 7 SP3 x64.

Yes, on windows 7 it's shown as you mentioned.

Bad build: 24.0.1290.0
Good build: 24.0.1289.1

Unable to give bisect info as print preview not present on chromium builds.

This is the closest range I could find for regression window:

Hi Bernhard,

How can I trigger the print preview on chromium? ctrl+p works fine for
chrome but on chromium it opens the system's print dialog.
Nov 13, 2012
Yeah, that's the problem -- Print Preview requires the PDF plug-in, which isn't part of Chromium :(

Installing a recent (Dev channel) version of Chrome and using the plug-in from there with --register-pepper-plugins="/opt/google/chrome/;application/x-google-chrome-print-preview-pdf" *might* work.

You can copy in the PDF plugin from a Chrome installation and run Chromium with --enable-print-preview.

Unassigning myself as OWNER as I'm unfamiliar with this code.
