    For many days I have been able to save pdf web pages when those pages appeared in my browser. I would call the page up in FF and then save the page using save as. I am running FF and XP. I thought FF gave me a save page as option showing save as pdf but maybe not. Anyway, I want to be able to save pdf files that show up in my browser when I find a pdf file in google. How can I save a pdf file when I see the file on my screen?

    Thank you in advance.

    Have a look at the instructions in the following Firefox link:


    By default, Firefox should be opening .pdf files inside its own viewer.

    You should be seeing the following in the top right corner of the page. It will allow you to download the .pdf files:


    You can also set your own .pdf viewer as default, like Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader.
