Please provide the following information to reproduce the issue at our end:
1. Your OS version
2. Installed Acrobat/Reader version
3. Printer drivers and model
4. Sample PDF document on which you have observed this issue.
Printing the document backwards by default is an unwanted, but standard feature in the Acrobat Pro DC app. It is not really a printer/hardware related issue. I am using a Brother MFC-J6510DW which has built-in duplexing.
To those who have commented that they think the blank page on the back of page 1 is the result of Acrobat printing a "cover page", do the documents that this occurs in always have an 'odd' number of pages? If so, try the step below and your document should print fine with the blank page now being the back of the last page of the document.
As you will see from the screenshot, the Adobe help article on Printing double-sided (https://helpx.adobe.com/ca/acrobat/kb/print-double-sided-acrobat-reader.html) suggests that when printing using a Single-Sided printer you should, "Select the Reverse Pages option. In this scenario, the Reverse Pages option ensures that the page sequence is correct." However, selecting the "Reverse Pages" option is also necessary for double-sided printing to Printers which have the feature built in.
When you select "Reverse Pages" the document will print the document from page 1 to the end instead of from the last page to the first and place the blank page, in a document with an odd number of pages, after the last page instead of on the back of the first page.
