Page Range Default

more options

In one of the recent updates the Page Range box is blank. It used to default to '1' but now defaults to nothing. I often just want to print the first page so I want to change this back.

Where is the option to make this the default? Is there a setting or addon I can use to get this back?

Hi Geoff, my print range is blank now, too.

Firefox 69 changed from using a custom print dialog to using the standard Windows print dialog. The custom one had separate from and to boxes for the print range, while the standard one just has one box. Was it that long ago?

If it was something more recent -- a change to what is shown in the Windows print dialog -- I don't know whether that was a Firefox change or a Windows change.

The strange thing is that in other browsers the '1' is still there, notably edge since I didn't have anything else installed on this computer. If it's a windows thing, you'd think it'd be universal.

With the new version, the print dialog changed and this is no longer an issue.

As a side note the new dialog box is beautiful.
