Works for me. Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050929 Firefox/1.6a1 1.25GHz Powerbook G4, 512Mb RAM, OS X 10.4.2. I also tried the reported build, it worked for me, although I did notice that the 2nd, 3rd, ... document printed I was offered the same name to save as as the first. (expected to see the page title each time and this is the behaviour I see in 1.6a1) Reporter: do you have a specific page that this didn't work on? I used various pages including bugilla entries, entries on answers.com, and stories linked from ap.org, all worked ok.
More info emailed to me by reporter (please don't do that!): === Thank you for your response of 9/29 I have tried it on many things, including those you recommended. No success. I do notice that each time I try to print as pdf, I can see on the desktop a quickly appearing and then disappearing file with the name I am asked to save as. But the file is not created. Can not find it with Cmd-F or with Spotlight. Strange little problem. My problem was with using Firefox 1.06. Same problem now using 1.0.7 So I use Safari.
