I'm using Firefox on linux exclusively.

    One thing I like about Safari and OmniWeb on a Mac is that the operating system's built-in Print, Save as PDF actually yields clickable links in the generated PDF. The very same option does not create clickable links in Firefox though. I don't know how Safari and OmniWeb do it (one would expect a Print to PDF option to not know anything about some hidden links, and I certainly had not expected non-Apple software to know the internals of that). But if you like clickable links in the PDF, then that might also have an effect on the Firefox solution you choose. – Arjan Sep 29 '09 at 15:19

Save web pages as PDF with Firefox 3

or use the Screengrab addon.


You could use cups-pdf to Print the page as a PDF.

  • That's a decent solution, but I'd prefer a solution that uses firefox only. – Peltier Sep 29 '09 at 12:32

Something that maybe works for you


Another alternative is to download CutePDF and ps2pdf driver and use Print option in firefox to print PDF. Or use this Add-on.

  • Note that the add-on is not supported for new versions of Firefox – Erel Segal-Halevi Aug 13 '12 at 7:04

Image it spoiled.
