Landscape oriented PDF prints only in Portrait mode
I have a reporting application which displays to the user reports in PDF, some of them are in landscape orientation, but when the user prints the reports, they are fitted (shrunk) into a portrait orientation page. This is happening with Firefox 19 and the new embedded PDF viewer. Is there a way to resolve this problem?

Just to clarify the problem, if you go to this link (a landscape PDF) and print it, it will fit into a portrait oriented page instead of landscape.
Anyone have a solution to this issue? Very annoying, only started happening on 19.0.2.
Reports at my organization that always printed in landscape are now printing in portrait. Users do not know they have to go into the printer properties to set the orientation for each report. IE automatically picks up the default orientation from the PDF file so it does not need to be set in the printer properties. This is a significant issue and it is disappointing to see there does not seem to be a solution to the issue.
PDF.JS in Firefox is a "work in progress" and far from complete.
My advice is to save those PDF's to disk and open them with a full fledged PDF reader program; or disable PDF.JS in Firefox and use a PDF plugin instead.
Thank you. I actually emailed the link you provided to our users earlier today.
