Since upgrading to OS MountainLion there is no Print Preview option button when I want to print from FF. How do I get the Print Preview button back?
Since upgrading from OS Snow Leopard to OS Mountain Lion there is no Print Preview option button in the Print pane when I want to print from FF. How do I get the Print Preview button back? (This is in "Show Details" mode - - all the old buttons and settings still appear, except the Print Preview button.)
I noticed an "Open PDF in Preview" option under the "PDF" button, but the resulting preview takes considerably longer than it used to when Print Preview was a button in Show Details mode with OS Snow Leopard.
How do I get the Print Preview button to appear once again on the Print pane?
I have FF 37.0.1.
Thank you for any help you can give.

At least on Windows, the Print button opens print preview for me. If you want to the toolbar (as opposed to having it under the Hamburger menu button, where it lives by default), you can check out the following article: Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars
Hope this helps.
Thanks very much Rimas for the info about customizing the FF controls, buttons and toolbars. That was helpful of you to point out and is really good to know. But am still in need of seeing how to get my Print Preview button back : ) It appeared while had Snow Leopard, but disappeared as soon as upgraded to Mountain Lion. Thanks again for your willingness to help.
Hm, this article has Mac screenshots: How to print web pages in Firefox. So I suppose you're missing the little Preview button at the bottom of that dialog? That seems like a stock OS X thing, not something added by Firefox. I guess Apple removed that button in Mountain Lion, but hey, they have a KB article explaining how to do Print Preview now: click here to see it.
Like I said before, I'm not using a Mac, and on Windows, printing works differently: clicking the Print button opens in-browser Print preview dialog, which contains some page controls and a real Print button. If you would like to see something like that on Macs as well, reporting a bug in Bugzilla might be the right thing to do.
Mountain Lion was released in 2012, so I suppose there might be advice in old threads or on the Apple forums if you don't get a response here right away.
Thank you to both Rimas and jscher2000 - - very helpful!!
