Google Chrome crashing after updating Foxit Reader?

I recently updated my Foxit Reader installation to the latest version (4.3) now during the install it crashed my running version of Google Chrome (10.0.648.114 beta). Then when I tried to re-launch Chrome it crashed instantly, both on launch and if I tried to restore a session.

Google Chrome has stopped working, Whoa! Google Chrome has crashed. Restart now?

If this happens to you what you need to do is open up the Foxit Reader itself, then under Tools > Preferences > Internet and uncheck ‘Display PDF in Browser’.

Foxit Reader preferences, display PDF in browser.

I’m guessing this is because Google integrated its own version of the Foxit Reader software into the browser, so I’m not sure who is to blame here.
