Hello, A friend of mine can only print to a PDF in Chrome. When he prints to a PDF in Firefox or Safari, Acrobat won't open it, it says it's corrupt. What could be causing this?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sometimes Ghostscript may help you, if not, see resources below where you
find more variants of restoration .pdf documents…

Ghostscript will repair your corrupted PDF automatically… if it can open it
in the first place (that is, if it is not damaged beyond repair). But
afterwards you’ll still need to double-check the result…

On Linux, try this command:

 gs \

  -o repaired.pdf \

  -sDEVICE=pdfwrite \

  -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress \

   corrupted.pdf

On Windows, try this one:

 gswin32c.exe ^

  -o repaired.pdf ^

  -sDEVICE=pdfwrite ^

  -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress ^

   corrupted.pdf

    Are all his browsers up to date as well as Adobe Acrobat?
    Have you tried to open one of these "bad" files with the same result?

    For Firefox only, check the latest version you have and browser sets properly to open/read files. Check here for more info:  https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/view-pdf-files-firefox-without-downloading-them?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=Opening+PDF+files+within+Firefox

    What version of the browsers are they using? Is their system 32 or 64 bit?
    It may be a setting that needs to be updated.
