The entire print function is not working. Thunderbird cannot "see" any of my printers, including pdf printer. It does not give any error message. Also the Print-Preview function does not work, it gives error message "an error occurred while printing". Firefox and all other applications printing okay. Thunderbird version 24.3.0. Operating under Windows 7 and 8

This is most certainly a Try.

Open the config editor see reset the value of printer.print by typing as much of the entry as is needed to make it show in the list and then right clicking and selecting reset

I dont have a printer.print file. There are many print.print files, all of which are set to DEFAULT setting. Others have mentioned a print.print_printer file but I dont have one of those either ! Thanks for your ongoing attention.
