large matrices

when I write

matrix(CDF,dim)

with dim <=19 the result is a dim times dim matrix with all zero elements. If on the other hand dim is equal or larger then 20 then, in the command line I get the outout

20 x 20 dense matrix over Complex Double Field

in the browser with the the Typeset button selected I obtain a large matrix with all zero elements in the pretty_print style, but in the browser without the Typeset selected I get the following error message

Is it only my problem?

Concerning your first remark, even if Sage answers

20 x 20 dense matrix over Complex Double Field

you get a true 20 x 20 matrix with zero entries in the Complex Double Field, as you can check by typing:

sage: dim = 20
sage: matrix(CDF,dim)[2,3]
0.0

What you see, is just a representation of the object: actually Sage gives you the result of the method matrix(CDF,dim).__repr__(). If you want to see all the entries of your matrix, you can type:

sage: print matrix(CDF,dim).str()

Yep, I was working with some "big matrix" (some 50x50) and I have the same bug (sage 5.8 on a windows Mozilla firefox)... Seems SAGE is not happy to print a matrix bigger than a 19x19 (but has no problem if is just a list).
