I love Print Edit! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I just love this add-on. I do research and I used it all of the time to save source documents and sites without all the extraneous images and text I don't want to see or have filing up my hard-drive, with rarely a snag. When there is a snag, I suspect it is Firefox or my computer at fault, not Print Edit.
Unfortunately, my new Macbook Pro has so many conflict issues with Firefox, I was finally forced to quit using Firefox (despite my preferring it over Safari because Firefox allows me so much more individual control). When I switched browsers, I discovered there is no Print Edit for Safari! Waaaaah!
It's a pain to separately open a site in Firefox just to use Print Edit, slowing me down, so I don't use it much anymore - only when desperate to use it on a specific page because I can't find any other work-around. I really really miss it!
Try the Chrome version of Print Edit ...
There is a fully featured version of Print Edit for Chrome available from the Chrome Web Store. This version is called Print Edit WE.
Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
ExcellentThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (17.2).
Dead Links Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Dead as a piece of paper, because it doesn't keep alive the links to other pages and bookmarks or links in the same page.
If they add those features I will rate it 5 stars.
Not the main purpose of Print Edit ...
The main purpose of Print Edit is to allow editing of a web page before it is printed (onto a piece of paper). The feature that allows saving an edited web page to a PDF is convenient for many users, but is not the main purpose. The library included with Firefox that Print Edit uses to generate PDF files does not have the capability to retain hyperlinks.
Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars
One of the best add-ons I've used!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (17.1).
Super util - Super useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The PDF feature creating text pdf became this addon in a killer app. Moreover it is very compatible, it works fine even in old FF browsers.
Reminder for Palemoon users, to use PDF feature, "Print edit options, Saving" , "Enable for FF4-27 on Win...."
Just about perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This must be among the most useful add-ons ever. I've been using it with the offshoot Pale Moon browser, and it works flawlessly. For what I mostly do online I'd be lost without it now. My only wish would be an option for URL links to remain clickable in the saved PDF. Thank you for the fine work.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (17.1).
Excellent Utility Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I use this utility to save invoices as pdf's.
Being able to edit a webpage and save as pdf is very useful...

O melhor conversor para pdf Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Já testei mais de 30 complementos. Esse é o melhor conversor para .pdf!!!!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (17.0).
just what I expected Rated 1 out of 5 stars
You talk about the main menu bar/box/whatever, then you say if you dont have one, then click on the orange squirrel/hedgehog/whatever - you dont say what to do if you dont have one of those, either. There is a 3-barred icon on the top right, it has a print button, but I dont see any way to edit the selection I want. Is this what you're talking about? This is complete and utter BS, I want to print a small section of a web page and I have spent 25 minutes trying to find out how to do it. This is very simple in other browsers, why is it so difficult here? I'm trying to like this browser, but you're making it very complicatedThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (16.8).
Documentation updated ...
Apologies - that section of the documentation referred to earlier versions of Firefox and has now been updated:
On the Firefox main menu bar, select 'File' and then select 'Print Edit'. If the main menu bar is not visible, right-click on an empty part of the tab bar and select Menu Bar to show the main menu bar.
Alternatively, right click on the web page contents and on the context menu select 'Print...' and then select 'Print Edit'.
Alternatively, just click on the 'Print Edit' toolbar button. If the 'Print Edit' button is not on the toolbar, right-click on an empty part of the tab bar and select 'Customise...' and then drag the 'Print Edit' button onto the toolbar.
Very good add-on, but images are cropped when saving to HTML Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Images are cropped when you save a page using Web Style (*).
Also, keeping web links when creating a PDF file is a good idea.
Please, correct these things and your add-on will be perfect!!!
(*) Note 1: In fact, images are cropped when saving to HTML. The problem doesn't depend on Web Style is active.
Note 2: Problem was quickly solved by the developer.
Now it's perfect.
If you print a lot ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
... you probably need this. Just the sort of thing for people who want to remove annoying banners or other elements from a page before printing. Only annoyance was that sometimes the selection rectangle didn't work quite as expected.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (16.8).
Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I print bills, bills usually get to two pages, and this one is great to put it on one page. works perfect for me.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (16.8).
Fantastic Add on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This has been my go to addon for creating PDFs in firefox for several years, it works great.
Just a note for the developer, I am setting up a new computer and putting my addons in Firefox. I couldn't find this addon in Firefox addon search when I searched for "PDF" I had to check one of my other computers to get the name of it then searched for it and found it. I know it does a lot of other things but it is a GREAT PDF tool. If you could get it to show up under PDF search you would have even more people using this addon
Broke during Firefox update & developer was helpful to fix Rated 5 out of 5 stars
In the last week or so this stopped working. When icon clicked I get a box entitled "Print Preview Error" with the message "An error occurred when printing". Using Win7 with same error in Firefox 46 &amp; 47 in Print Edit 16.8
UPDATE: Thanks for your help! This is what I did to solve my problem: I uninstalled Print Edit & disabled the other 3 Add-Ons [Adblock Plus, NoScript, Flashblock]. I restarted Firefox a couple times. Reinstalled Print Edit & it worked fine. Re-enabled each of the other three add-ons one at a time & checked Print Edit. It works as advertised now.
Very, very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Extremely useful thing when you need it; really a great idea and tool, well implemented. I've never had problems with stability.
Muito bom Rated 5 out of 5 stars

BROKEN in 46.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I am no longer able to edit any documents using this extension. The problem arose when Firefox updated to 46.0.1. Suggestions?
UPDATE 1: Version 16.8 just arrived in m Firefox update this morning, so your response (below) was very timely. The update has solved the problem. Thanks for all your effort with this extension. Outstanding work.
UPDATE 2: I spoke too soon. I was overly optimistic because it looked like it was going to work, but it is not working. I am using Win10. 'Print' opens a print dialog box. 'Preview' opens a preview. 'Print Edit' does nothing. Clicking on the Print Edit icon on my toolbar does nothing. I am not willing to do a reset without abandoning Firefox altogether. This has become a continuing source of irritation for me with Firefox. I love it, but it it seems to need 'resetting' and falls apart much too often. If we cannot get this working, this might be the thing that finally pushes me to Chrome permanently. Thanks for your help.
Broken PDF "Page Setup" Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I'm having the same trouble as the previous reviewer. When I check the PDF box, then go to "Page Setup", I can't change any of the settings. My new PDFs have headers on them from an old PDF. If I try to change it or remove it, the "OK" button does not work. Otherwise, great tool.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (16.6).
