Cannot print from Firefox. Have tried everything in this forum. Error "An error occurred while printing".

Posted

I have literally tried everything that I've found about printing issues on this forum and even spoken to your team on Twitter. I don't know what to do. I would rather use Firefox over Chrome, but I don't have a choice. Is there anyone that can help??

So where are you printing from a site or link? Without anyone here knowing where your printing from that would make it hard to diagnosis the problem area.

I have tried every single thing here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-printing-problems-firefox

I still get the error with header "Print Preview Error" that says "An error occurred while printing."

I got the same error message when I attempt to print a document from an email to the Microsoft Print to PDF driver. The error message is "An error occurred while printing". I use the Quantum 67.0.3 (32bit) on Windows 10 PC. I did uninstall and reinstall the software (as Administrator). This did not solve the problem. The problem was solved. When I launch Firefox from the shortcut (the default desktop shortcut created after the program install for all users) the Print job to the PDF driver works fine. When I launch Firefox from my own shortcut it does not work, and, the print job remains in the print queue in the spooler.

I also tried to change the directory to the software install folder and launch the browser from that folder. Still the print job did not print. Only when I launch from the default desktop shortcut the print job works.
