I try to avoid using PDF extensions in any browser. I'd much rather open
PDFs with the *real* application where you have direct and full access to
all of the capabilities of the program.
I first delete the PDF extensions from my browser(s) of choice and then go
to Default Programs in the Windows
If you have Acrobat on the system, don't install Reader, and set
Chrome to use Acrobat to open PDFs.
That has nothing to do with Save as PDF.

We had a different problem with Save as PDF. We use alternate-row shading
in tables. In some table cells, seemingly randomly, the text goes behind

Thanks for the community-service alert, Austin.
Would it be useful/possible to incorporate this useful information about

Did you check your joboptions setting? If that somehow gets reset

My fantasy is that there has been a storm of protests from PDF users
and Adobe is in panic mode, struggling to fix the problem they've just
created. Does that sound like Adobe, or like a dream?

Does this relate only to FrameMaker, or also to Save as PDF from other
applications, such as Word?

Which file format do you use for your images?
Are all image formats blurry now?
Do you get this effect with all files with such images?
Do you use RGB or CMYK?
What happens, if you select the other colour mode?

I've been having issues with blurry images off and on for several months
without much success.
Have you tried requesting technical help from Adobe on Twitter?
