I have the Foxit Reader plugin 2.2.3.402 installed on my computer. However, when I'm using Firefox browser and I want to print a page to PDF, the print to PDF option does not appear in the pull-down printers list when I use the Print option. How do I get it to appear in the list of printer options? Do i need a further plug-in? I'm running Windows 7 if that's relevant. Thanks

Hello there, you can start with this


Check Firefox page settings

If a web page prints incorrectly in Firefox:

   At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button, go over to the Print... menu (on Windows XP, click on the File menu) and select Print Preview. The print preview window will appear.
   In the print preview window, make sure Scale is set to Shrink To Fit.
   Make sure the Portrait orientation is set.
   Click Page Setup.... The Page Setup window will appear.
   In the Page Setup window, click the Margins & Header/Footer tab.
   In the Margins section, make sure the page margins are set correctly (the default setting is 12.7 mm, or 0.5 in).
   Click OK to close the Page Setup window and return to the Print Preview window.
   Back in the Print Preview window, click Print. The Print window will appear.
   Make sure the correct printer is shown in the Name field.
   Make sure the Print to file setting is not selected. 

If you made changes, go ahead and attempt to print the page again. If not, follow the instructions below.
