Firefox shows a PDF invoice provided by my internet bank. The PDF is readable on screen but when I print it out, all the text is scrambled (see enclosed scan). What happens? I have to go the long way and download the document and read it with Adobe Acrobat Reader and print from there to get it right. Or I can use Chrome, from there it will print OK.

Firefox PDF visualization plug-in: character set mismatch

I notice this strange behaviour using my favourite WEB browser: Firefox. Using firefox plug-in to preview into browser a PDF document I notice some character set mismatch happend.

For character set mismatch I mean: page layout perfectly shown but text shown using not appropriate chars. Due to this behaviour it is not possible to understand content of page. This strange behaviour do not effect all PDF pages, but only some of them.

From the pdf plug-in I tried to download the PDF file and into pop-up window I choise to open it with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. Into Adobe Acrobat Reader DC all PDF pages are perfectly shown.

I think some "unusual" PDF setting is not perfectly interpreted by pdf plug-in

I will attach: 1) a PDF page as shown into Firefox PDF plugin 2) the same page as shown into Internet Explore PDF pluin or Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

The problem is worked around setting into Firefox a different method to handle PDF file, but it is possible such information can be usefull to better design Firefox PDF plugin.
