Browser compatibility - Google Chrome


Bullet Point Browser compatibility - Google Chrome:

You may be unable to complete or submit CSO eForms using Google Chrome.

Google Chrome has its own in-built PDF Viewer which currently does not support all CSO eForm features.

If you encounter difficulties completing CSO online forms you will need to enable the Adobe Reader plugin for Google Chrome.

How to enable the Abobe Plugin :

1. Type Chrome:plugins into the browser address bar.

2. Locate Chrome PDF Viewer in the list of plugins and click Disable

( Note: If Adobe Reader is not listed you will need to install/re-install Adobe Reader software ** )

This will automatically disable Google Chrome's default PDF viewer.

When you re-open the CSO eForm all the required features should be available and you will be able to complete and submit your return.

Alternatively, you can use a different browser.

** Adobe Reader software can be downloaded free from the Adobe website.

Note: Solution courtesy of the Google Chrome Help Forum.
