Hi

I am having a problem with a file that has document restrictions turned on to prevent printing of the document (Printing Not Allowed) this file was created using Adobe Acrobat 11 pro. When the file is downloaded and viewed via web viewer build into Firefox it is allowing the file to be printed. even when the security setting are turned on to prevent printing. The settings work fine when viewed in IE 11 and Chrome using Firefox is causing the problem. Is there any extra settings that can be set in Acrobat that will prevent this from happening? Give it a try by just creating a simple 2 word document and setting security for not to print and just open the file using Firefox Web browser and then try to print it will allow the file to print. Any idea's would be very much appreciated.

Thank You.

Does that apply to Firefox for Android?

That's a question for Firefox. Adobe don't control this, or keep tabs on it. I am appalled that big companies ignore the security rules, but none of us can stop it.
