Not printing properly on eBay with built-in PDF viewer 103.01 (64-bit) Mac OS

Hello,

The last few days, I've been having issues printing with the built-in PDF viewer, but only on eBay. The invoices and labels will look fine in the preview, but when printed, any images on them will come out garbled and corrupted.

I tried to print using Chrome and had no issues. Would this be just a Firefox issue, or an issue with eBay and Firefox.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

Firefox 103 for Mac has a known issue printing PDFs with embedded images: the images are scaled too large so you only see a portion of them within their allotted space.

There is a bug on file with the developers already, so I'm hoping for a fix by next month's release of Firefox 104.

Until then... I have not yet learned of a workaround. For now, I think it's best for Mac users to print PDFs from Preview, Acrobat, or Safari until this is sorted out. If you need to switch your default handling from viewing in a tab to launching in one of those programs, this article has the steps: View PDF files in Firefox or choose another viewer.
