Reecently, with the latest version of Firefox (101.0 32 bit), I can no longer print directly from within the browser as if I do so, my printer simply throws balnk pages. The printer is directly connected

I have tried another printer connected via wireless to the same PC but get the same results.

However if I download the file and open it from Acrobat reader and then print, it works perfectly.

So what do you see in the print preview? Is your windows 7 32bit?

Yes it is Windows 7 32 bit and the print preview looks correct, even changing from mono to colour when I switch from one printer to the other as it should. One is a laser, the other an inkjet but I don't think that's relevant and just include it for your information.

Can you update to 101.0.1 and see if it makes a difference. How about checking what happens when you print to pdf, is the saved file blank? I'm on 101.0.1, but let me print a pdf from Firefox and see what happens.

Hi, already running 101.0.1 as you will see from the attached screenshot, as requested.

Tried printing a PDF again from within Firefox, but sadly it gave the same result.

Not sure I understand your question Dropa but if you are asking which websites the PDF problem occurs on the answer is all of them. If I download a PDF and view it in Firfox, then print it, the result is always a blank sheet of paper.
