what happened to the PDF checkbox in the Print Preview Menu?

Posted

On my Win-7 Pro computer, v41.0.2 Firefox has a PDF checkbox adjacent to the PRINT button, which changes to SAVE PDF when the box is checked. This GREAT feature is missing from Firefox v41.0.2 on my wife's WIN-8.1 computer. How come???

Hi Sandybrown, I think that must be from an add-on. Could you check your extensions list to see whether you can spot the one which is PDF-related? Either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons

In the left column, click Extensions. Then peruse the list on the right side. Any obvious candidates?

Thanks, jscher, but... when I entered my question, there was a box that showed my current settings and add-ons. Did that not go through, or am I missing something? Thanks again, Sandy

I think it's didn't come through, it usually appears in the right column under "Question Details", "More System Details".

If you want to paste a list now, it's easiest to copy from the support information page. Either:

  • "3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Troubleshooting Information
  • (menu bar) Help > Troubleshooting Information
  • type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter

Scroll down to the Extensions heading, use the mouse to select from there through the table that follows and copy (e.g., Ctrl+c or right-click > Copy) and then paste into a reply (e.g., Ctrl+v or right-click > Paste). It will look a little message, but don't worry, we're used to it.

OOps! Mis-read your question. But the answer is NO. I had a funny feeling that might be the "cluprit!" I'll install and see what happens! Thanks!
