When I open a PDF file online and try to print it, I get random ASCII characters instead of normal text. If I save it to my computer, I can then open it and print normally. Adobe doesn't have an answer, and HP doesn't either. I run Mint 19 on a HP laptop with a HP Envy 5055 printer. This also happened with my old HP 5450 printer.
