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?

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!

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!

Dear Firefox Team, Just now, when I opened a new tab, there was a survey that asked a few question and for answering that, they offered a iPphone Pro. I know it is absurd, but i would like to know if FF carries our surveys in other countries.

Please advice

Thank you in anticipation.

When the input type is date then the format is 'mm/dd/yyyy' regardless of format type. I know that Firefox doesn't support this yet, so I'd like to know if and when it will support other formats like 'dd/mm/yyyy' that we use in Greece.

Thanks in advanced for your help.

Original question, Why doesn't DarkReader add-on work on home page?

Answered with: Internal pages are protected from addons. But you can simply select the dark theme in ≡ -> Customize.

Possible reasons not to work:

  1. The poster was an alien
  2. 42 (See no. 1)
  3. Mozilla devs just hate us. When we (have to) come for answers here, from a comfortable dark web - whether using Dark Reader, or some other means - they purposefully BLAST us with bright white pages so that we will never, ever use Firefox again and uninstall it right away and move on to something else (less idiotic).
  4. Seriously, though, see the answer in context was an alien.

So, who can tell us how to get around this, please? We get it, whatever: support.mozilla.org is, somehow, a local page - or, something - and it can't be styled, but how do we get around this BLINDING WHITE LIGHT? Thank you so much.

^^ addons.about ("addons.about-scheme") can be styled, Library (Downloads) can, Options (about:preferences) can and also about:about and a bunch of abouts can, also - only this website is locked like this, to torture people, why...

EDIT: Screenshots attached illustrate that, as suggested in the first thread from years ago, Dark Theme had been applied and it makes no difference.

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?

MS Word Document Displayed Incorrectly in Firefox

I've posted the following in the MS Office Forum:

In the Word desktop app I used "-->", which Word autoconverts to a nice arrow. When viewing the document in the browser version of Word it gets mangled and shows up as a "à" symbol. Note: This happens on the same computer! My browser is Firefox (84.0.2). When using Edge or Chrome the arrows are displayed properly.

And got the following answer:

This appears to be a bug in Firefox. The two characters have the same Unicode value, 00E0, but the arrow is in the Wingdings font while the à is displayed in most non-symbol fonts. Although the font box on the ribbon in Word Online says the font of the character is Wingdings, Firefox fails to show it in that font.

Given that both Edge and Chrome seem to be able to display the document correctly, it seems to me that this is a Firefox bug?

Recently accessing shows on cbs.com fails with an error 113 that they can not show ads?? Have disabled adblocker on site before, but still get it. Even disabled the adblocker altogether and get the same thing. Tried all the things about clearing cookies and cache, but nothing fixes problem. Can copy link, and in Google Chrome I get an error 1106 the first time, but then do a refresh, and it works fine and plays show just fine. So, not sure why I'm getting the 113 error with firefox? Don't know if a recent upgrade to firefox changed something, or if something changed with cbs.com that it doesn't play the add. The ads on the google chrome where from boh.com, but tried adding that to whitelist, and still got the 113 error. But then even with adblocker completely disabled it did the same.
