Firefox .pdf viewer has documents shifted too far to the left. there is no way to center them with the tool even reducing the doc. from 100% to say 80%, they remain too far to the left. without any left side margin, any printed doc. that must be 3 hole punched for a LL binder, has data punch through it. this doesn't happen with any docs. printed directly through hotmail. they are centered correctly but any .pdf, even downloaded say through Adobe Reader but opened with Firefox will have the same problem Why? thank you, Michael

When you open a PDF link in Firefox or visit a website that embeds a PDF file, the browser will automatically use the PDF viewer to display the content. Here are some features and functions of the Firefox PDF viewer tool:

Viewing PDF Files: The PDF viewer displays the content of the PDF file directly within the browser window.

Navigation: You can navigate through the pages of the PDF using the navigation controls, such as the arrow buttons or by using the scroll wheel on your mouse.

Zoom In and Out: The PDF viewer allows you to zoom in and out on the content for better readability.

Thank you jimmy.wick90 for taking the time to help with my observation about Firefox pdf viewer. My observation is that the viewer has docs. justified too far to the left of a page. Much more than any other pdf viewer out there. Why, I don't know? This extreme left justification is not correctable using any of the viewers functions as I and you have pointed out. This extreme left justification causes a printed doc., using Firefox pdf viewer, to not have any standard left side (blank) margin on the page. Why may this be important? Well some people out there, like myself, may want to print a pdf doc. And like myself, may want to punch holes into the left side of a printed pdf doc. in order to save the doc. into some sort of document binder. But there is a problem here. Without any left side (blank) margin, the hole puncher goes right through some of the printed data. This is not a good thing for any pdf viewer to do. Now this may be looked upon as just my opinion but to some like myself it can be very annoying. I am hoping that my effort to bring this to the attention of those who have been involved in the development of the Firefox pdf viewer may want to adjust the data justification from a far left orientation to a more standard centered justification like the other viewers out there. "Show Me The Margin", LoL All the best to you and the others for your fine work on making Firefox the best (my opinion) browser out there. Yt, Michael
