There's more than a little irony in this application name, which kept us in an inescapable log-in loop but didn't convert a single Web page to PDF format.
When you first install LOOP to PDF for Firefox, the publishers Web site appears with a step-by-step guide on how to use the program, and a shortcut icon is installed on your toolbar for activating the application as a sidebar. You have to create an account before you can use the free program, and you'll need to enter your e-mail address and select a password. We were impressed by the programs performance right up to the time we hit Enter and the Web page cleared our entries. We tried to enter our e-mail address and password in the login feature on the sidebar, but we kept getting an error message. The publisher offers support on its Web site, but you have to log in to use it. In other words, it doesn't do you a whole lot of good because logging in is the problem in the first place.
We liked the idea of this free program, but in reality, we never got far enough to see how it works. Until the publisher works out a few major issues, we recommend you skip this one altogether.
Upload, convert, and combine your files to PDF from a tidy toolbar, without the conversion getting in the way of your Web browsing. LOOP for Firefox allows you to convert and combine files to PDF with the click of a button. LOOP for Firefox also provides a revolutionary way to document Web pages while browsing the Internet.
You can seamlessly document URLs with the click of a button and then download or combine the web pages with other files to a single PDF.
