Printing Webpages Using Firefox: Issue Resolved

Version 73.0.1

When printing a webpage from Firefox (Open Menu->Print), the print preview mode is displayed. On most websites with multiple pages, each page displays the full text in order.

However, on some websites with multiple pages, the first page displays text but the second page only shows the header in the top left and the website in the top right but the page is blank. On other webpages, full webpage text is displayed but it is out of order.

When using Opera, the webpages that showed blank text or out of order text in Firefox are displayed completely and in the correct order.

Is it a website browser compatibility and configuration issue (the webpage is only configured correctly for certain browsers) or Is this a known Firefox glitch that causes some pages not to be displayed correctly in print preview mode?

I hope that my question is clear.

When I print a web page, the other columns on many pages overlap with the content I'm trying to print resulting in an unreadable printed pages. This issue does NOT occur in other browsers so I've had to resolve by printing using IE or Chrome. I've tried ALL of the recommended fixes on your help topics with NO fix. All my print page settings are at the recommended default and I've reset the printer properties via your help topic recommendation. Can you help? My printer is a HP laserjet 2200d. My OS is Windows 7, 64-bit.

We have a problem with printing through the firefox of the latest version of 62.0. But there is also a problem with printing in the previous version of 61.02. Print starts only in the old version of the browser, with each print necessary to do Firefox cleaning. Maybe some problem with cache or something like this, but how can i solve it?

When I'm on many different web sites and I store things either in my Wish List or in my Basket, I am only able to print 3 pages when what I'm printing is longer.

This is an issue with Mozilla because it does not happen thru IE. Nor is there only 3 pages that are printable.

I try using File/Print Preview ... all pages are visible, yet only 3 pages will print.

This has been a problem ever since I've used Mozilla ... I always apply updates ... I use Windows XP Pro.

Thank you.

In the print dialog box the option 'print each frame' is gone. As someone asked, you can do a right click and print a selected frame. But that's a whole different thing. I want to print all frames on the page at once. I use a PC , if that makes a difference

So how can I get it back? Or do I need to switch browser?

Hi! I've switched to Firefox quite recently and I love pretty much everything about the browser. The only problem I've been experiencing is that whenever I try to print a page the whole browser crashes. I've tried removing all the settings for printing in prefs.js but that didn't seem to help in any way and the crashes don't turn up in the about:crashes tab. Has anyone else been experiencing this and perhaps knows how to fix it?

This will always happen with the Epson TM-T20 printer after successfully printing approximately 40 receipts. After restarting Firefox the problem is repeated.

The printer driver is the latest version 5.09E of 2018-01-15 but the driver version does not affect this issue.

I have tested individual versions of Firefox with factory default settings. This problem first appeared in version 50.0b1. Firefox 49.0.2 and older work well with this printer.

Basically, if a PDF file has italics, they print out bold. If I print to a file and reopen it in firefox, it also appears bold and not italic on the screen.

I read a similar post where a user had the same issue, but their solution seemed to be "open in Adobe Reader," which seems like a lame solution.. Their complaint was that the extra step is annoying, and I agree. When I download a PDF file or open one from Firefox, I should be able to do so within the browser. I can do it chrome, but I prefer not to use chrome.

I tried to attach screen shots of the page as it is supposed to be and how it actually prints, but the "Uploaded images:" box just keeps spinning. If anyone can help and would like to see what my issue actually looks like, I can sent you a picture somehow, I'm sure.

I've used Firefox as my default browser for years on my PC (Windows 10), never had this problem: Two days ago everything I printed from Firefox started printing in tiny print. After sleuthing, I found that my default print scale size (as seen in the Print Preview window) had defaulted to 30% (I normally leave it at Shrink to Fit). And even the title of that percent window changed from "Scale" to "ShrinktoFit".

The problem is that I can't change it out of 30%! When I choose another percent or Shrink to Fit in that Print Preview window (as I've always done for years when I want to change the print size for a particular job), it doesn't hold; next print job it's right back to 30% and tiny print.

I went to the Firefox "How to fix printing problems" page and followed all the instructions (including the about:config fix), I have restarted Firefox multiple times including in Safe Mode (with all Add-ons disabled), I finally uninstalled Firefox completely on my PC and then downloaded and reinstalled it again, but still the print size is stuck at 30%. And that's for anywhere and anything I print on the internet in Firefox (my Yahoo email, any and all web pages, etc). I tried downloading Chrome and printing the same test web pages from Chrome and they come out fine. So it appears to be some glitch with Firefox on my PC.

Any ideas what's wrong?
