Hi pastore27-

You should be able to print documents from webpages using Firefox. The print button should display by default. However, it is possible it was removed during an upgrade or due to custom preferences. The way to fix it:

  1. Firefox > View > toolbars > customize
  2. Select the printer icon and drag it to your browser window

I also found a Support article on restoring toolbars, as you said the toolbar was missing:

Navigation buttons like back, home, bookmarks and reload are missing

I hope that helps!
