2023-06-20 hmijail The only addon that was able to generate a PDF with youtube boxes and selectable text, for free.
2023-05-03 usonianhorizon This Add-on has solved a maddening problem for me: UPS.com invoices would show, for the most part, as blank either when saving as PDF or when printing obscuring the most critical information. Recently I stumbled across this Add-on, and it worked just as the instructions outlined. Thank you!
2023-01-18 Cyberknight Have you ever tried to print-to-PDF a Page, just to find out that Firefox (or Chrome), for some dumb reason, decided that it'd be a very good idea to convert the whole Page into a series of screenshots, instead of text, resulting in a huge PDF with non-searchable/indexable content. Other times, it might even print text as text, but clipping the content, literally cutting lines in the middle, leaving the upper part of characters on one page and the lower part on the next. Those and other extremely annoying nuisances can be solved, most of the time, by disabling custom fonts and removing all CSS... What makes the resulting Page look like crap and, worst, lose content (like list bullets and numbering, nowadays done entirely as style, instead of being part of the content...) Anyway, this extension tries to solve the printing problems, either to actual paper or to PDF, without completely destroying the Page styling. Some changes may or have to happen for that to be accomplished, but it's a necessary trade and would have to be done, anyway, if the Page was intended to be printed from the very beginning. It reduces lots of time otherwise wasted manually hacking Pages (pressing F12 and trying to fix them), instantly becoming an essential tool for Firefox!

2022-09-12 Korwin Unfortunately, the add-on does not allow the user to save a long web page into a single page PDF document.

2021-02-23 aikidd Very helpful addon. Am I correct in thinking that all of the processing 'Printable – The Print Doctor' does happens within the browser without transmitting anything to other servers?
2020-12-17 DavidQ Solved problem of when printing website to PDF the text was saved as image (and so not searchable / selectable / copyable). The 'Printable' add-on as an option to print using basic fonts that solves this problem !
2020-10-22 Firefox user 16382809 After 2 hours of frustration, this addon is the only way to print websites without repeated elements. Some of the news outlets I read have repeated elements on top and on the bottom like header or footer, hiding some of the text of their articles when printing. If this addon would also fix the firefox bug, where links are not preserved as such when printing to PDF, then this would be the greatest PDF addon for firefox on the market! Not nice, but actually works!
