i'm trying to print out a PDF quotation for a client, but every time the printer just spits out blank pages. does it matter that it was an email attachment? when viewed as HTML, it will print, but rather small and without the logo images and stuff.
i'm using Win7x64, Firefox 29 and i have the latest drivers installed from the canon website. it's a pixma mp250, if it helps.

no. i haven't installed adobe reader, i tried to print it from firefox. i've not needed to print a pdf until this afternoon, so i've just used FF to view/save them.
i'll install reader and try that.

It's not really broken, you need the Adobe Reader app to read the file properly. If you had it installed and opened it in the web browser, you probably would have been OK.
