hp officejet pro8500 a910 shoots out blank paper when trying to print from windows 10 installed firefox. Printer works fine from chrome and ie.
I am beta testing windows 10. I use both a hp laptop (dv77128nr) and a desktop (home made). I use a hp officejet pro8500 a910 printer.
When using firefox I get only blank pages while trying to print from within the browser. Only using firefox. Chrome works fine. IE works fine. If I boot to windows 7, firefox works fine. Can you help or should I report this to Microsoft?
Thanks for your help.
ps. Tried resetting firefox. Haven't tried a new install.

Firefox isn't officially supported on Windows 10. For that matter, Windows 10 isn't officially supported either. This is most likely a problem between Firefox, Windows 10, and your printer's driver. Try updating your printer's driver and see if that helps. Otherwise, it might be a good idea to post this on Microsoft's forums as well.
There are two Bug reports filed on Firefox / Windows 10 issues. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1089188 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1100156 (Please don't comment in those Bug reports unless you can provide a patch to fix the problem.) https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=etiquette.html
So Mozilla is aware that there are problems with Firefox (not) printing on Windows 10, and the developers are looking into these Bug reports
