I use acrobat plugin to show pdf files in web browsers (PHP Programming in CI). Since my contents are confidential, I want to hide save buttons, print buttons and even right clicks and in all major browsers (firefox, chrome, IE, safari, opera, etc) I am new in these all, please suggest clearly.

    Forget this idea, you cannot protect PDF by hiding parts of the interface. Consider what would happen if someone just uninstalled Reader - they will be asked to save the PDF instead.


    What you need is DRM. This doesn't stop files being saved, copied, shared or emails, but controls who can open them.

    Then the uninstall didn't work properly. Anyway that's just one of many ways to save the PDF instead of viewing it.
