Hi guys,

FF crashes when I try and print any web document or PDF.

I've tried everything from similar threads including: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-printing-problems-firefox and starting in safe mode, but can't seem to resolve this.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Cheers, Firefock5

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=308173

In Firefox 1.5, a developer was having problems with a network printer going offline causing him to have to change the default printer often. Because he really only needed it to work in the product he was QAing he patched Firefox for Windows to set it to the last used printer. There have been a few DUPEs since then, and some chatter in the support forums from people who thought their printer drivers were broken, and I've just seen this "why can't I print from this webpage?" question popup in the field, where they had accidentally selected presumably by keyboard input a virtual printer instead of the real one.

Windows now tells you if the printer is offline anyway.

how do I print the last page first

I am trying to print in reverse order, I would like to print the last page first, or shrink to fit on one page.

I have shrink to fit on one page set but it is still printing on two pages

Two pages is ok as long as it prints in reverse order, as the printer is a label printer

I have looked at about:config and changed the

print.printer_ZDesigner_GK420d.print_reversed setting from false to true

but it is still printing in the same order

also is there somewhere that describes what each setting in the about:config does ?

Thanks

Print preview not working on certain websites (including microsoft pages) in a fresh firefox v50.1.0 profile but working flawlessly on IE and chrome

I am using Firefox v50.1.0 32bit on Windows 8.1 pro x64.....(Chrome v50 and IE v11) . On a fresh profile (newly created) i tried printing preview for MS-Word 2016 keyboard shortcut page https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Keyboard-shortcuts-for-Microsoft-Word-on-Windows-95ef89dd-7142-4b50-afb2-f762f663ceb2 but it just does not work (see attached images) only prints 3 images(just as it shows in the print view....>changing portrait|landscape|page margins|show back ground etc doesn't change anything) and improperly at that. However it seems to print all the pages in (and correctly at that) in IE and chrome....(both of their print view shows all the pages in their entirety which Firefox doesn't) .. I am using two pdf printers Nova Pdf v8.6 and Tracker PDF-Xchange Standard v7( I am sure both of them are doing their work properly as I can print to pdf exactly as it appears in print preview) Tried using system print dialog box (print.extend_native_print_dialog) but that also doesn't work...Also resetting printer configs doesn't apply to me as profile is fresh.... Is it just me??Any suggestions?? Best Regards

We use the STAR TSP100ECO thermal receipt printer for our POS in Firefox. Since the update to Mac OS Sierra, Firefox will not save the printer settings (paper size) - they reset every time you close out of Firefox. Firefox is up to date.

Some fonts/headings in webpages print doubled/strange

Printer tech here, I was troubleshooting a Sharp printer and ran into a strange issue when printing from Firefox. Client has a MAC - OS 10.13 I'm sorry I don't know offhand what version of FF it was but I can tell you that I was told "this is the latest version" when I attempted to update it.

It prints some fonts (webpage headings only perhaps) in a double print/font that makes it appear a bit garbled and unattractive. I'm quite certain it is not a printer issue because the same page prints fine from Chrome and iexplore. This forum will not adequately upload my sample images so I have posted them here: Firefox erroneous printing: https://i.imgur.com/KZ2kTTw.jpg (captain obvious put the bad print in red blocks for you) Chrome printing: https://i.imgur.com/PYuGH6a.jpg iexplore printing: https://i.imgur.com/qzBDXHE.jpg (BTW support folks I uploaded all three images to imgur, thought through, typed and posted this message before the first image was able to upload here...You may wanna take a look at that)

My client showed me several webpages he was having problems with, my samples are all the same page which is http://siica.sharpusa.com/product-downloads

What I have tried: All suggestions listed at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-printing-problems-firefox, including -Changing the default font -Resetting the Firefox printer settings -Resetting ALL Firefox printer settings (removed any lines containing "_print" in the the prefs.js file)


Any suggestions or assistance is greatly appreciated!

Foxfire prints landscape when portrait requested for wireless printer

When using Foxfire and requesting a page be printed to my wireless printer, it prints landscape instead of the requested portrait. Foxfire works fine on a direct connect printer, and other web browsers (ie Microsoft Edge, Chrome) work fine printing to the wireless printer. If I change the orientation to landscape in Foxfire, it prints portrait, but cuts off the left hand side of the page. Thunderbird, and all other programs (Word, Adobe, etc) print to the wireless printer correctly. Everything is set up correctly under printer properties, so that is not where the problem is. Until I know the problem is fixed, I will use a different web browser when I need to print a document from the internet. I using Foxfire version 26 (User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:26.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/26.0)
