I want to save a web page as PDF,but can't find the same "options" and easyness that i found in google chrome.
Actually in chrome when i want to save a webpage in PDF / print a file i go for ctrl+p then it automatically previews it with many options such as paper size/standard and more.. which makes it very EASY and time saving which i could not find in firefox. At
first i used chrome but later shifted to Firefox due to Privacy.... I thought installing PDF software made it disapper but later found that Firefox lacks the option.
Suggestion : Please provide more options and make it ease of access in the print section of Firefox, also the print preview shows the options such as landscape/portrait... in top side it will be much easier if it is to the left/right side.

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.
If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. Your feedback gets collected at http://input.mozilla.org/, where a team of people read it and gather data about the most common issues.
You are correct: Firefox only has a built-in Save as PDF feature on Android, not in the Windows version. (I don't know why that is...)
Perhaps the easiest way to convert a web page to PDF is to use a PDF printer. There are several free programs that set up as new printers, and when you select that as your printer in any Windows application, a PDF is generated. For example, here are two free PDF printer drivers I have used:
You can find many others in a search if those don't meet your needs.
There also are a variety of websites to convert a page to PDF. If the page requires a login or cookies to display correctly, these external converters won't work well, but for ordinary web pages you visit anonymously, they might be quite convenient. Some of these services offer a Firefox add-on or bookmarks toolbar button to send the address of the page automatically.
