Steps to reproduce:

Hello,

i would prefer to use PDF.JS instead of Adobe Reader, but there are some major problem - this is the reason why wo don't use PDF.JS in our company.

1) We often use "scaling" in the printing preview when printing a website, because a lot of website are not optimized for printing. the scaling factor is often changed.
The problem is that this "scaling" (e.g. 80%) is also be used for PDF at the moment.
But this what normally nobody wants. Everybody want to get the pdf 1:1.
Scaling for PDF and Webpages should be "seperated".

2) when printing with 100% scale the PDF is moved some millimeters to right (firefox is adding margins!).
Firefox does also add a second BLANK page the the printjob. I thinks this is because the "image" of the page has been "moved" because of the margins.
I think this issue is also described in other bugreports (but without any details)

3) it is possible to download a file. But a button for directly attach the pdf-file to a new email for sending is also missing.

i hope i can support you fixing this issues

an other issue:

4) when printing with "adjust to page" (not 100%) and you want to print a landscape format PDF-Format (e.g. with page size A4) the printout is NOT rotated automatically (like all PDF viewer does) it is minimized
