Thank you for your input. I'm glad you found a solution that works for you.
For me it is too many steps, and requires installing software that would duplicate what I already have - Acrobat Standard and CutePDF Writer (free) - both do an excellent job.
Why would I do that when FF already does it automatically?
In my opinion, Opera is using inferior pdf creation software because of cost or some other factor.
The only reason I moved to Opera was faster loading of the program and of accessing web pages. It is very pleasant, but that's all.
Now I have to use FF to make PDFs of on-line receipts, etc.
Needing two browsers is unacceptable. This print issue could send me back to FF.
