how to bookmark a webpage that ends in ".pdf"

  • How do I bookmark a webpage that end in ".pdf"?

    I have some bookmarks in Chrome that are pdf pages, how do I do the same with Opera without having it to automatically download the pdf and have the web address canceled?

    for example:

    I have this page bookmarked on Chrome, if I paste it in Opera it automatically downloads the page and I lose the address...

    (Using Opera 22)

  • You can't do that (AFAIK). If you want to open PDF files without downloading them (like in Chrome), you can:

    1)Install the extension called PDF.js (; or

    1)Download a software for PDFs such as Adobe Reader and Foxit Reader (Which also have plugins for the browser).

    The only way I can think to save a link that ends in .pdf is copying and pasting it into a notepad file for future use...

  • all right, thank you for your answer joegd21

  • You can drag and drop the link to the bookmarks bar. Or type/paste it in the address field, highlight the whole link and drag and drop it.

    Or use the big + sign in the Speed Dial to store it there.

  • yeah, ingenious solutions, thanks a lot rafaelluik!

    the drag and drop works, but i have to have the link posted on a webpage, like here, in the example i made.

    the type/paste in the address field doesn't work as well because you have to push enter first. But when the .pdf download starts the web address in the address field change to a google search result, which can be used and dragged, it's a compromise.

    speed dial is good too...

  • the type/paste in the address field doesn't work as well because you have to push enter first.
    It works for me, pressing Enter isn't required. Type there, select all (press Esc if the address field drop-down list is blocking your way) and drag the selection to the bookmarks bar.

    Perhaps with the new focus they're giving to bookmarks in the latest development versions they'll add a add lick to bookmarks in the context menu at some point...

    But it should be easier regardless if you had a PDF plug-in in Opera like you have in the other browsers...
