Description

5 years ago
We either enable the printing of all pages (including books with 1,000+ pages) or we need to reliably alert users when we know we can't handle it. 

We don't want to waste users' papers by printing only a part of their document/book.

This is about printing support in PDF.JS - not about saving web pages to PDFs. 

AFAIK there is no "Save as PDF" support in Firefox on Mac, but you can save a PDF from the Mac print dialog. For other platforms, you could use a plugin like this one:

(I haven't tested this one, as I'm working on Mac...)

This bug isn't clear.

- Is this a meta bug? Then it should have Meta 
- If not, perhaps we need STR etc.
- Either way, neither summary nor description are very descriptive...

Also: Is this limited to MAC?

Above all the pdf should just spool through to the printing system- there are many corruption
problems because pdf.js is interpreting the file and the result is far far worse than the screen view.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=880181

but there are many other similar bugs of unreadable results even on a single page print.
