Were are experiencing a issue with barcodes. We have tracked the issues down to Firefox version 67. Problem is that the barcode will show before you print, but when you print, the barcode disappears.

What site are you printing from? How did you track the issue to firefox67? That would help developers reading backtrack problems.

Hi GunjanVansjalia, if I understand correctly, you are using a custom font for the barcode, not an embedded or background image.

I assume the barcode font is a web font that the page directs Firefox to download? Or is it a locally installed font?

Does anything print in place of the barcode, such as characters in another font, or is it completely missing?

Is the barcode text part of the main page, or is it in a frame or iframe?

Does Firefox display the font on-screen, or is it missing from the page on-screen as well as the printout?

Thank you. So if I understand correctly:

  • Barcode (using locally installed font) appears on the screen
    • Most likely it is not a security sandbox issue because Firefox can display the font on screen
  • Barcode does not appear in printout
    • Using window.print() but presumably the same situation if you print interactively
    • In brief testing, Firefox 67 an print unusual local fonts like "Comic Sans MS" so I don't think it's a general problem with local fonts

Does your page using any print style sheets or @media print{} style rules that could result in having different fonts in print than on screen?

Are you testing with a regular printer or a PDF printer driver (e.g., Microsoft Print to PDF)? Any difference between the two?

Hi, have you found a solution for this?

I didn't have enough information to diagnose the problem at the time you wrote (without a public page to test).

Perhaps it is related to another thread from a couple weeks ago. Could you compare: Window.print() issue.

I am not aware of any bug having been filed about this.
