Disable PDF printing

Greetings to everyone!

I would like to disable printing, saving of pdf files on the intranet. Files are displayed in the browser. In the old version of Mozilla Firefox this solution worked:

"<object data="path/Filename.pdf#toolbar=0&navpanes=0" type="application/pdf" width=90% height=700>"

The toolbar disabling does not work in Firefox 19, the toolbar is appearing. How can I disable it again?

You can downgrade to version 18.0.2 - the current version uses PDF.js where pdfs show automatically.
