I can't provide a concrete example, but we use Oracle E-Business Suite where I do IT support and most of the generated reports in PDF format have this issue where the Adobe plug-in, with the 'Auto portrait/landscape' setting selected on the Print dialog, will automatically print these reports in landscape as our users expect.

The native PDF viewer in Google Chrome also automatically prints them in landscape.

PDF.js version 0.7.28 (Firefox 20), however, prints these reports in portrait.

It's using the last state of portrait or landscape as chosen in Print Preview.
Instead of clicking the print button on the pdf.js toolbar you can press Alt-F-V to use print preview, then select portrait or landscape.  Can the pdf.js toolbar be customized to add a print preview button?

A pdf open through Firefox internal previewer with only landscape pages should default print layout to landscape and print correctly.

Instead - with FF 45.0 (but even on 44.0.2 and 43.x) a PDF with all (just one, in my test) pages in landscape is shown correctly in landscape, but is printed on portrait since when I click on the print icon on the top right header toolbar of the preview, the popup windows with the printing options has "Portrait" as layout default...
