Firefox "Print Preview" has disappeared from the File menu in 84.0.2
Somehow while searching for this solution on the web. I got my answer in a foreign Firefox. The answers posted to this solution are in English but all the other buttons are according to Goggle translate are in Lithuanian. How can I see this whole page in English?
I was able to answer a couple of people but if I search in my USA profile, none my posted questions or answers include the ones from the Lithuanian Firefox. Just curious if I could see them here somehow.

Here is the solution to this question from the Lithuanian Firefox
Just wanted to add, this is the solution I found in the Lithuanian Firefox:
The new print experience is in testing and not everyone is getting it every time. For future reference, this is the preference to switch between the old and new styles:
(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.
(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste tab_mo and pause while the list is filtered
(3) Double-click the print.tab_modal.enabled preference to switch between old (false) and new (true) Skaityti atsakymą kartu su kontekstu
Firefox's new print UI now always creates a print preview, so that's what you'll get when you click "Print" in the "File" menu. If print preview is what you want, you don't need to turn that preference to get it.
Hi Jonathan Watt,
Since I have been using Firefox for many, many years, I was always able to have the Print Preview option from the File menu. All of the sudden it disappeared the other day with a new version so I had to do the above steps to get it back. I do not like the way version which I find too complicated for my taste.
In the new version, the print preview display is too small for my viewing. I cannot determine whether the layout is what I want, margins are correct, among other things. I prefer the previous print preview version, which is larger. Thank you for the option of using this "fix".

Hi adrienne6, the preview shrinks a lot based on window width/height, which definitely can make it too small to read. While I don't know whether that will get fixed, I have my fingers crossed.
