Print Preview Error -- an error occured while printing

I have a HP Laser network printer. I can print to it from everything except Firefox, my favorite browser.

Anytime I try to printer I get "Print Preview Error -- an error occured while printing".

I can print to a pdf, then print the pdf, but that is terribly awkward.

Is there a setting in Firefox causing a problem?

I am having the same problem. I have a Brother laser network printer. The problem for me happens on Firefox version 90.0.1 and 90.0.2. I tried it on version 89.0.2, and the problem is gone. This is on Windows 10, multiple computers.

When I get the error, a single blank page prints out.
