Whenever I try to print (this started yesterday) I get a window that says Print Preview loading....................

and nothing happens beyond that. everything up to date as far as I can tell. It worked fine until yesterday

Do you have a printer installed ?

Are there error messages in the Browser Console about printing ?


You can set print.tab_modal.enabled = false on the about:config page to revert to the old dialog.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
