Author Topic: Problem printing PDF files.  (Read 1395 times)

My problem is as follows; If I'm on the internet, ans come across information that I want to save for future reference, I tell Firefox to print that page as a PDF file and is seems to work okay, but when I go back later to try and print that same PDF file from Acrobat Reader, nothing happens. Now hear's the kicker - when I download a PDF file from the Internet, Acrobat reader will print it without any problem.

Any practical assistance will be greatly appreciated. My Firefox version is 26.0., and I have Acrobat Reader 9, if that is of any help.

but when I go back later to try and print

I gather the "printed" pdf file opens and displays OK, but just won't print? 

If so, I would try opening it with another program.
