I am using Print Edit WE which seems to be one of the more highly recommended pdfing Add-Ons. However, I can't seem to print pdfs that are searchable. Am I missing something? In Chrome I just right click and print and generally get a lovely pdf that is searchable. Any suggestions?

Thanx much. You didn't solve my problem, but at least I know I am not missing something. I am going to go to Bugzilla and see what I find there to report this. Definitely most annoying. I just switched to FF since I read so much good stuff about it and like much of what it does better than Chrome. But this pdf thing is a big problem. I guess I will simply use Chrome whenever I need a searchable pdf.
