Hi, in the previous version of Firefox for Android I could save pages as PDFs. I cannot find this option in the new version. How can I save a page as a pdf?

Thank you for your help.

Hi

Save as .pdf is currently not available in Firefox for Android, but may be included in a future update. In the meantime, if you hold down the volume "-" and the power button on your device, Android will take a screenshot and save it to your pictures.

How can I downgrade back to the old Firefox then? The new version is of no use to me if it lacks essential features.

Can Firefox recommend another Android browser we can use instead that supports saving as PDF? This update 79.0.5 is dreadful. Only two customization options in settings? Several add-ons are not supported. No menu support and the added inconvenience of swiping through scores of big fat icons to search for the desired action. Hope your build plan included a rollback section.

I too asked support about the removal of the 'save as .pdf' facility. No constructive solution was offered. That seems strange - removing a very useful asset from the toolbox!

I have found an answer. Use a different browser suite. Opera has this facility. For both PCs and Android systems.

Disappointing that Mozilla now makes its software less useful as it updates. Presumably, in a short while after a few more updates, Firefox becomes entirely superfluous.

Sad sign off.

Martin - now completely foxed.
