Firefox prints only every other page on a bulk print run, why?

Posted

I use Firefox to bulk print Ebay invoices. It's been just fine for years. But 2 days ago it started printing just every other page in full. Intervening pages had only the top 20% printed (headers and footers are set to blank), and it prints one extra blank sheet at the end of the print run. 'Fit to page width' is enabled. I print at A5 size. When I check print preview it shows the problem exactly. The preview confirms 80% of every second page is missing, and there is an extra blank page at the end. Anyone else have this problem?

Hi ashura, When you print, check to see which presets and defaults are selected. It could be a stored preference to only print every other.

In order to reset these preferences in Firefox:
