Compatibility issue with iText/Adobe when trying to generate self-printed document

Good morning,

I would like to know whether there is a iText compatibility issue with Firefox. I am creating a self-printing pdf document, embedding javascript in it. This javascript is a function call that calls to a .js file located in

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader\Javascripts

The thing is that I can print it properly from Internet Explorer, but not Firefox. So I would like to know whether there is compatibility issue between this elements. I'm using the following:

   Windows 7
   itext 2.0.2
   Firefox 19
   Internet explorer 9

Thank you

Apologies for the delayed response. As you probably know by now, Firefox 19 introduced a JavaScript-based PDF Viewer that does not yet have all of the features of the Adobe plugin. Inability to run embedded JavaScript was mentioned in this thread: FF 19 and PDF viewer issue.
