Firefox "Print Preview" has disappeared from the File menu in 84.0.2; all I have now is "Print", which brings up a Microsoft Edge style print dialog. Is this an upgrading error, or is it just the way Firefox will be now?

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

Firefox 86 for Windows gets a beautiful new Print dialog, with great Print Preview and other functionality. The Mac? Nope!

And there is no technical reason for this! Chrome/Vivaldi/Brave all have a similar dialog box that makes it easy not to waste paper when a website insists on printing a second page for a single word.

Come on, Mozilla! A little feature parity would be nice – especially for such basic functionality!

I do not intend to sync Firefox on my phone or iPad. My computer is the best and only place where I use Firefox. It seems completely unneccessary for you to keep sending me notices about that as if I were a totally new user every time I log in on my Firefox. I prefer using Firefox, my guide on Internet, and I use it all day. I have already insured you I have the latest version. Is that okay for you too? /Irma Ridbäck now 80 yrs!

I use 85.0.2-64 bit on a PC.

For the last month or so. Perhaps since the last update or two. I can't login to my bank.

Details:

-I try it on Edge, and it works.

-When it fails, I get the bank website's standard failure error message: "Your username and/or password are incorrect. Please try again";

-I've repeatedly checked on the correctness of my ID & PW repeatedly over the last month;

-I use Norton PW manager, but I have back-up on a secure thumb drive. I try the PW using my backup, and it still fails;

-I try typing my ID & PW in manually, and it still fails;

-The only successful workaround on Firefox is to change my PW. Then I can login: once;

-I do have add-ons, but I deactivated all of them, restarted Firefox, and it still fails.

I've used Firefox for decades, but not being able to do simple banking is a strong argument for using Edge. Do you have a remedy or a suggestion for this?

Hi community, when i have only one tab opened in Firefox i can click on the "close tab"-X or Ctrl+W. This action will close Firefox, but it won't close the tab. So when i start Firefox this last opened tab, which usually would be closed after clicking on the X, will open at start again.

This behavior drives me crazy. If i want to close Firefox with the only tab opened remaining until restart, i usually would click the red X of the Windows forms control elements.

Is there any option in "about:config" which really can close the last remaining tab, while also closing Firefox?

Thank you

I have found out this issue very recently when I was trying to upload my music library into my Youtube Music account, but couldn't do so because I was using my brand account. I tried to switch out to my personal account, but after clicking my personal account, the page refreshes and my account is still my brand account. I tried this with Youtube in Firefox and it's producing the same problem. I'm able to switch in and out of my accounts in Chrome, but yields differently when I tried it with Firefox. I figured I can maybe get some help to what I am supposed to do if I still want to use Firefox and able to switch account more easily.

dear ladies and gentlemen,

Firefox has been delivered with the new print dialog since version 82.

I have to print around a hundred PDF files at work (usually only the first page of the document). The new print dialog means that there is a lot more work for me here.

Is it possible to set the "old" system print dialog by default or to instruct firefox to always print only the first page of the document by default?

I can't find a way to enlarge the font size in menu or bookmarks toolbar, or the drop down menu and the bookmarks themselves. It is ridiculously miniscule and I have to use a magnifier to see it - I have Fuchs Dystrophy so my eyesight varies from day to day, but 16-18 size is usually ok. Can anyone point the way if any please?

FF ESR 78.7.1 (32-bit) vs. FF 85.0.2 (64-bit) rejected by a site I need to use

The ESR release is apparently behind an update, likely security oriented (the site ESR is rejected by is a Bank). I've been told by the site that they test (essentially) Chrome...and go with THEIR updates, if it suits their purposes. They suggested blowing away the ESR history (...cookies and all of it) and restarting ESR. Afteer that didn't work, I'm presuming the fix the Bank wants is in FF 85.0.2 and not in 78.7.1 ESR. But, I'm guessing.

I realize ESR stages ESR releases to follow FF so to allow testing ahead of FF auto update migrations. It's one reason why I use ESR most of the time. But, I think it would help if we could have some way to associate ESR's release cycles (Versions) to FF (Versions) with dates and expected. Maybe it is somewhere.

Q. What is the relationship, if any, between the versions FF vs ESR? Is ESR 78.7.1 = FF 78.7.1 or what? Q. If not, what? Where/What is the relationship and is the timing set or variable on progressions of ESR?

Is there a way to import 'CLIQZ' bookmarks? Cliqz has been discontinued and no longer supported. I have been using it for several years and want to import its bookmarks to Firefox so I don't have big job of replicating. Because Mozilla and Cliqz were affiliated I thought there might be some method to do this but can't find a way in Firefox help file. Is there a way to do this so I can go back to using Firefox?
