Is there a way to make Firefox act like Chrome for printing? I looked at addons, but that's not the solution I'm looking for. How can I show a screenshot of what I'm trying to do?

How does Chrome act, be specific?
With Linux you should have a print to PDF printer available in the repositories for Ubuntu, Mint and others which will print to a PDF file.
If you want to print the PDF you are viewing it should be a simple matter if you either saved the file or you could print from the viewed file.

Not sure what the OP wants.

Chrome is the same as FF on Mac. To print a PDF of a page I hit Cmd + P and that opens a system window. I then select PDF and click the OK button. Can't get any simpler.
