Are you also sometimes annoyed by only finding documents on http://scribd.com and nowhere else? Furthermore this site is missing of a download or printing opportunity – at least there is no one for ordinary vitors.
Fortunately there is a little trick which might help you to still download a pdf: For mobile visitors using a mobile browser (tested with Opera Mini), there is a download button. You just have to:
- use Firefox
- Tell scribd untruly, that you are using Opera Mini
- open a new tab, enter about:config in the address bar and go for it
- accept the security hint
- use the context menu to create a new string named
- set the value of this string to
Opera/9.80 (J2ME/MIDP; Opera Mini/6.24288/25.729; U; en) Presto/2.5.25 Version/10.54
- visit the scribd page again and use the now appearing download button to reveive your pdf.
- you should reset this string afterwards again to an empty value
If you need this regularly, you can install the Firefox Agent Switcher Plugin for some automatization.
