Universal Print

I've loaded a lot of articles and posts that I wanted to print, but it just takes too long to go through each and every tab and press the Ctrl-P or hit the button for each. Universal Print is a utility extension that definitely has my support.

If you have trouble on how to use the extension, you can activate it two ways: 1). right-click on a toolbar at the top and left-click on Customize.  Look for the Universal Print icon and drag it where it feels comfortable to you; and 2). right-click on a tab heading and you'll get the Universal Print option in your context menu.

After using the extension numerous times, I've noticed the requirement for a print configuration dialog and based on some user comments, it seems its a feature that is definitely a necessity.

This is the type of feature that I thought the Mozilla foundation would've included in a Firefox release.The Universal print extension is a good extension for printing web pages with one button press. Ok, maybe two. :-)
