Why is the Adobe PDF Create add-in no longer supported by FF 25?

more options

I am using FF 25 on a Windows 7 Pro x64 system. Recently, I did an OS reinstall and with it a reinstall of Firefox. After importing my old profile, I noticed that the Adobe PDF create button was missing. This is a very handy application in my daily workflow.

Going to the Add-ons manager, I noticed that the Adobe Acrobat - Create PDF 1.0 add on is disabled in FF 25. Why was support removed for this?

I tried using another PDF add-on, but it caused the browser to hang and it had to be removed. Is there a reliable option for saving a web page as a PDF? (other than using a Mac).

That message means the addon needs to be updated to be compatible with the latest version, if that addon is essential, you can revert to a older version.

If the second article doesnt work, the above applies.

After searching on the Adobe site, I found a workaround. It seems that you select Print and change printers to "Adobe PDF", which then converts the page to .pdf format... sort of. On some pages there are garbled letters instead of legible text, but that's an Adobe issue, not Mozilla's.

Thanks for the quick reply.
