When I'm on many different web sites and I store things either in my Wish List or in my Basket, I am only able to print 3 pages when what I'm printing is longer.

This is an issue with Mozilla because it does not happen thru IE. Nor is there only 3 pages that are printable.

I try using File/Print Preview ... all pages are visible, yet only 3 pages will print.

This has been a problem ever since I've used Mozilla ... I always apply updates ... I use Windows XP Pro.

Thank you.

I have ask this before, but never solved. After about a half an hour of browsing, choosing Print results in the print preview window,, but choosing Print it just dings. My Printer is installed as the default printer, and the Windows xp pro sp3 is a new install (c drive reformatted), and Firefox 32 a new install (but restored by Mozilla Backup).

Temporary Fix is to restart Firefox. Hard to diagnose because Safe mode requires a restart, as well as disabling add-ons .

I have run across numerous Firefox users with the same problem, but have yet to hear a fix.

Is there a way to set page breaks before printing?

Many times, it will need just two pages, and it would be better if part of the content from page 1 were on page 2, with the rest of its related content.

Just got a used Dell Optiplex GX520 computer running Windows XP with a Canon printer. I can print from MS Word or MS Xcel fine, but keep getting a Crash message when using Firefox. Firefox was installed when I got the computer. I tried the "about:config" solution and there is no entry for "print_printer". Then I uninstalled Firefox, restarted the computer and re-installed Firefox. Tried printing and got the same problem.

Any suggestions on how to proceed.

'unknown paper size custom size 1' whenever I invoke printing

Firefox returns many 'Gtk-WARNING **: Unknown paper size Custom Size 1' messages whenever I do anything that seems to make Firefox think I'm going to print; actually trying to print isn't necessary.

I have no printer; I use printing to capture a page as a PDF. Because Firefox cuts the pages in the middle of images I have a custom size, 200 lines long (the longest acrobat handles) to minimize (usually eliminate) page breaks. It works: I get pages that long. This warning message merely annoys me. Page length doesn't matter: I get the same complaint when I make Custom Size 1 8.5x11

I suspect that the real problem is some service Firefox calls doesn't recognize non-standard page sizes and that Firefox doesn't use that service for my purposes so it doesn't matter.

When I print a web page, the other columns on many pages overlap with the content I'm trying to print resulting in an unreadable printed pages. This issue does NOT occur in other browsers so I've had to resolve by printing using IE or Chrome. I've tried ALL of the recommended fixes on your help topics with NO fix. All my print page settings are at the recommended default and I've reset the printer properties via your help topic recommendation. Can you help? My printer is a HP laserjet 2200d. My OS is Windows 7, 64-bit.

Good Afternoon, I own a small business out of my home and use my computer all the time. In the last several weeks I notice when printing from my word document everything is fine, when I try to print googlemaps or any webpage it does not print. I uninstalled and reinstalled my printer, uninstalled and reinstalled mozilla, did everything the forums said to do, 'twice" and still not printing. It does print from Internet Explorer. I would really like to continue to use mozilla but getting very frustrated. I have made sure the margins are correct, everything in print, print preview that the forums have instructed me to do, but nothing changes. No error message comes up, Please help!!!! Thank you Michelle Spies removed email because of internet bots

When I use a link from a Web site to print the Web site or blog page, the item shows in a printable format in a pop up without a print icon in toolbar or right click options. I used the customize link to drag the print icon to the browser toolbar but it doesn't appear on the pop up printable version.

Any suggestions?

Hi guys,

I've been using Firefox for a number of years & it wasn't until yesterday (06 April 15) that I encountered an issue with printing... When trying to print my eBay invoices, everything loads fine but then when I go into Print Preview only the odd pages appear to have loaded completely, all of the even ones only have 1 or 2 lines of text on them.

I have restarted the browser, the pc, run all of the tests, tried other browsers (where everything loads), deleted the printer settings as per the help pages, etc but all to no avail.

Any helps would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Save Page ( Cntrl+S ) used to open a small Explorer window (Windows 7 OS). Suddenly (after update to FireFox 37.0.1), it opens an expanded (full screen) Explorer window. On mousing to the window edge, the size-change arrows appear, but don't respond to dragging. How can I make the window smaller, or reset Save Page ( Cntrl+S ) so it opens a small window again?

I haven't used coupon.com in a while and, although the plug in shows in the list, the printer does not work. I have reloaded the printer and upgraded Firefox to 37.0.1, but still it doesn't work. Prior to reloading the printer, it would just say "printing coupons" forever and never print. After re-loading it, the button doesn't work at all. It does, however work in IE.
