Printing problems are present since 2005. This is not acceptable

Posted

I start using FireFox instead of Google Chrome, but looks like I have no choice but to go back to Chrome because of constant problems with printing. And I am not even talking about the problems with SSL that I have to download and install the certificates one by one for each websites I am using. I did search everywhere and saw that I am not the only one and this problem is a permanent resident of all forums. All other browsers are working perfectly well, and just the FireFox can't get the problem fixed for over 10 years now. I have tried all support remedies and nothing is working. Deleting, resetting, you name it I have done it. In some remote forum found about the print.paper.data value setting, changing it from 256 to 1. Right now it worked and I will see if it will come back tomorrow. When I reset the setting the print.paper.data setting disappears. So resetting was not the best choice.

This sounds very dubious. I've had FF for long as it was out and when there is print problem that is more direct related to the printer software configuration or installation process. FF purely by itself can't print that option must be installed for FF to get those Print Options. Since you didn't take to a shop to verify if this was a FF or Print software problem in the past 10 years is very concerning in itself. I myself over the years have installed different printer on different O/S up to W10 now without much hassle or issues.
