Firefox print dialog box

more options

Hi,

With the recent release of Firefox, I have an issue with the printing dialog box in Firefox. It was working at least in Firefox 93, but now in Firefox 101, my printers name are truncated and I cannot choose the right one. Is there a way to fix that in Firefox ?

I know I could use the SYSTEM DIALOG BOX as an alternative, but I would like a fix to make the FIREFOX Print dialog box automatically adjust to the printers name lenght like it was in Firefox 93.

Thanks for your help.

Those printer settings come from the Windows 11 control and printer software. Firefox uses what's provided to it.

Sorry, I did file a bug report for this when it was mentioned a few weeks ago, but it has been assigned the default priority and isn't being handled as an emergency.

I do not know of a quick workaround. One possible options would be to use an unofficial, community-supported workaround (style rule hacks in userChrome.css) to widen the right panel and Destination drop-down. If you have a widescreen display -- it seems you have plenty of space for that -- it might be a good bridge to whatever comes next. Can't cook that up at the moment, but I'll keep this page open and try to post something in the next couple of days.

@Dropa I don't have the problem with Firefox 93 and Windows 10 (I didn't downgrade my Firefox version to 93 on my Windows 11 to test it. As you can see in this new sceenshot, the drop down list autoadjust to the printers name. This is the same computer (WIndows 10) on which I downgrade Firefox 101 to version 93.
