    Is Firefox supposed to be able to PDF websites? How? The site itself is showing in Firefox OK here.

    If I want to make a PDF from a webpage, I usually copy and paste what I want into MS Word, and save as PDF from that.

    look under "page", and then "save as pdf".

    Now is this "Save Page As", because that only has "web page, complete", "web page, HTML only", "text files", or is it "Page Setup", because that's for setting up printers, which might have a PDF printer driver installed, in addition to your actual printers.

    This is desktop Firefox on a Mac I'm looking at. I don't use Firefox on Android.

    for Firefox, there is an AddOn that does the job.
    just go to Tools, Addons, and look for 'pdf' and install that.

    I use it quite a bit.

    I use "Save Page As" more often though, because it keeps the pages in the original format complete with all pictures needed. Very valuable for technical articles.
    ( the super trick to this method though, is to create a special folder for that article first, and then put the "Save Page As" inside that folder. IF YOU DON'T, there will be misc stuff spread all over your hard drive, and I guarantee you, that parts of that page will be deleted later because you have no idea what 1234,rririri234.txt is for. )

    OK, well I don't use Firefox on Android, so can't tell you. Maybe someone else who can.

    If you want, we can move your thread into Android Applications or Android Questions, rather than the more general Lounge forum. If it was the PC or Mac version you were referring to, there's a Computer & IT forum for that as well. :)
