PDF SELECT and SAVE AS function

more options

I have recently updates to Windows 10. In the past PDFs uploaded via Acrobat. Currently they are uploading vi Firefox viewer. I have been able to SELECT portions of the file then SAVE AS . This included save as type.

The PDF displays ok. BUT I cannot find a way to SELECT . The TEXT SELECTION TOOL is not working. Is it just me?

Should I change to ADOBE and if so how do I do that?

I have this problem too. For a free an opensource solution, it's asinine for people to have to use adobe to properly view pdf files in firefox. Sure, we can view the files but you can't select text and using CTRL+F fails to highlight matches. And this problem isn't new. Mozilla just doesn't gaf.

I have to set open pdf files with google chrome. What a freaking joke.
