PDFviewerJS-FF19-Acrobat-pluginIE10.gif

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0
Build ID: 20130215130331

Steps to reproduce:

Testing a generated Financial Aid verification form PDF that was created using ActiveReports and Visual Studio, and meant to be viewed in the browser. 


Actual results:

Headings and other bolded text was viewed and printed as being normal font weight instead of bold in Firefox 19 with PDF Viewer JS but appeared as expected in other browsers like Chrome or IE 10.


Expected results:

Headings and bolded text should have rendered bold in the viewer and in print. Attached image shows Firefox 19 PDF Viewer JS top (incorrect display) and IE 10 Adobe Acrobat plugin (expected display) bottom

Sample PF File

When viewed in Firefox using PDFViewer.js it removes the bold and the italics text formatting from the PDF. 

When I print the PDF from Firefox using PDFViewer.js it prints like it looks o screen without the bold or italics text formatting.

When viewed in other browsers using their default Acrobat plugin the PDF appears with bold and italics in place as expected.
