Firefox 73.0 printing to pdf on Mac OS 10.13 doesn't carry the page title to filename

more options

I have tried every other browser on this machine(Safari,Chrome,Opera) and they carry the page title to the filename when saving it as a pdf (Ie "Ask your question to our community of user.pdf" for this page). I have run this browser in safe mode, used a newly created profile but the problem still remains. I ran a new Firefox Developer Edition version which had the same results. Then I ran Firefox 72.0 which did everything as it should. So my belief is there is some bug in 73.0 that is causing this

One more thing I found, The names are lost if the save dialog is used changing it to "Untitled" but saving pdfs through Print Plugins use the page titles as the filename.

I have seen now this is a problem across all platforms I have tested. Windows 10 has the same problem using "Microsoft Print to PDF", I have tried Linux Mint but since the destination folder is preset the full name is the page title as on the Mac. I have tried 5 different accounts across 4 separate 3 system installs, 1 bypasses the issue.
