I just learned how to solve this problem.  This is what I was suggested to do

1. Open the desired Web Page in Mozilla
2. Select the "Print" Menu item
3. Select "Print to file" option (give any name you want for the file)
   * The file is saved as a Postscript file *
4. ps2pdf xyz.ps xyz.pdf

Voila.  Now you have the PDF file.

The only other challenge is, to merge all the Postscript files into one (in
sequence) and then convert them to PDF.

Can Postscript files be merged?
