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!

When I try and print a page - say a receipt from an Amazon purchase, or a medical bill, or anything else!!! - firefox will not print the $$s on the right side of the page. It doesn't matter - when I select print - if I go to 70% (which i normally use) of if I go to 60% or 50%, the page prints, but the right side with the actual cost amount is missing. The full page DOES show in the print preview, but NOT on the printed page. Please help. I DO NOT like the new print window...may decide to - after many years - abandon Mozilla and Firefox. Lousy change several months ago in the Firefox print window and selection/option screen. It is REALLY aggravating and I, for one, do NOT like it. Please help me print the whole damned page. Thanks for the attention and a quick response. V/r, Dennis BTW, Win 10 Home, on a fast gaming desktop (works well), using Cox Communications as my cable provider for internet.

It seems that after the last update, 7/19/2021, PayPal generated packing lists only print the left 2/3 of the packing list image. The right 1/3 is completely blank. The Address line on the top of the page and the cut here line on the bottom both print properly across the page.

Is this due to the latest update, perhaps a glitch? All the settings are set the same way as before the update.

All troubleshooting failed to fix this issue. The packing list prints properly in Msoft Edge.

I am using Firefox and have noticed that when I do a view page source I do not see the current page, but a cached copy. To view the page source I first have to go to options and delete data.

Here is how to reproduce. 1. Go to a website showing changing data 2. Right click and select view page source 3. Examine the page source to see that it shows an older copy of the data, not the current data 4. Go to options and search on the term 'cache' 5. Delete the cached data 6. Go back to view page source and try again 7. Now the page source is the current data seen in Firefox

Last time Firefox updated, I managed to find information online about moving the website tabs so they were below the bookmarks instead of at the top of the screen. It was a huge pain-in-the-butt to do.

After a recent re-install, the tabs have moved themselves back to the top of the screen and nothing I do seems to be able to move them back below the bookmarks.

Is there a way I can move the tabs that doesn't involve spending hours hunting through posts on the web, changing hidden Firefox settings, and recoding .css files?

If not, why do you not give the option to move the tabs wherever the user wants? Especially when it makes far more sense to have the website tabs directly above the website being viewed, at least in my opinion?

I'm currently using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit).

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT

From the very start, for the last 25+ years, Right Click a link, and hit the letter W to open the link in a new window... Suddenly, with 88 Update, it is now the letter D. (while everything else in Windows is still W)

How do I get it back to [W] (Industry Standard is W)

Why did Mozilla change the letter to D?

I don't mind having to train myself to use D instead of W... I do mind that everything else still uses W, so I have to train myself to only use D in Firefox.

A new version has been released - 89. And the user interface has changed again. And some of the changes are very annoying. I thought I would write a feedback (review). But I found out through google that the feedback page has been down since 2014.

So the question would be where can I leave feedback on one change or another?

Hello Community, Upon updating Firefox today, some sites are cutting off the majority of the page and printing in the top-left corner. I've tried the following and none have helped:

Close and reopen Firefox Refresh Firefox Uninstall and reinstall Firefox Restart my computer Print from the system dialog Print from the Firefox dialog Cleared all add-ons Print from a different computer with a different FF account Print to a different printer Print to PDF

I've attached the PDF (after converting to JPG as required by this page) which was printed through Firefox which shows the issue. The same page prints normally in Edge and Chrome. I printed the same page yesterday without issue and when I did the test from another computer with a different FF account, it printed normally, the browser updated and had the problem so it's definitely something with the most recent FF update.

This may seem minor in scope since it only effects certain sites but it's a huge problem for me as I print quite a few pages from this site daily for order processing. Thank you to anyone who can help!
