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?

Today, when I go to print out a web page, the format of the Print Preview window has changed and the"Simplify Page" option is missing. I use this feature all the time. Without it many pages are impossible to print. How can I restore this feature?

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!

I'm going to say that for the last 3 versions of Firefox, I've had issues with many pages not loading images, not displaying the most current data, and every once in a long while (very infrequent) a page will just fail to completely load and I'll have to hit refresh so the wheels on the bus keep spinning.

Pages I have issues with: Yahoo Yahoo News Facebook CNN

The not loading images is the most frequent issue. Sometimes I'll need to reload a page a couple of times to see a pic. This is NOT on pages I have cached, but rather new pages I'm visiting.

The issue of not seeing new content is especially clear when approving new members or posts to a group within Facebook. This is a very regular occurance.

I just recently reloaded my computer from scratch (Mid Feb 2021), and this did NOT alleviate the issue, but rather it continued unabated.

The loading image issue looks like this.

This has been an issue of mine for the past few days and I can't find a fix. I've tried to troubleshoot it and I've repeatedly reinstalled Firefox several times. The application either:

a. Doesn't open at all after I click the icon b. Freezes, refuses to register inputs and/or crashes c. Works temporarily, eventually turns into part B

My OS is Windows 10 and I want Firefox to be my default browser but it's not running properly at all on my computer. I have sent multiple crash reports because of this. Does anyone know what the problem could be? This has never happened to me before.

Hi,

As in the topic. When I scan the QR code with Google Authenticator, the account is added and new codes start spinning (labeled Firefox ($email)). However, when I enter the visible code into the Enter security code input, I get "Incorrect security code" error (tooltip).

I can see Google Authenticator listed as a supported application, is this no longer valid?

I also tried typing the secret key into the app directly with the same results.

Thanks for help in advance.

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )

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!

Hi everyone,

After the 85.0.0 update and still now with 85.0.1 and 85.0.2 firefox crashes. It's usually happened with clicking a link that'll take action outside of firefox (not a url link but a download attachment link in gmail or a print link). I've also had it happen with placing links from the search bar to the bookmark bar, and just recently opening up the 'show all bookmarks' window.

It'll hang, i won't be able to click anything, and then it'll give me the 'close window' screen. It's never fully crashed and given me an error message. I start up firefox again, restore the session and everything is back to where it was.

I've tried refreshing. I've tried creating a new profile. I've tried uninstalling and downloading 85 direct from mozilla. Nothing seems to be working. I'm going to see how it does for a bit in safe mode, but all the add-ons I have I've had way before the 85 update and all of them are recommended by mozilla.

I'm all ears (eyes?) for solutions!

When I try to print anything in Firefox, the print preview window comes up with a spinning cursor where the page preview belongs, and it takes two minutes before it goes away and the actual preview appears. Only then can I actually print. Whatever process is taking two minutes even prevents me from quitting Firefox -- if I try to quit within that two minutes the FF window does close, bu* Bulleted list itemt the app itself doesn't shut down (as seen from the icon in the dock) until those two minutes have elapsed.

I can bypass the wait by clicking Print Using System Dialogue at the bottom right of the preview window, so I have a workaround. (Although whatever process it's waiting for is still going on, since I still can't quit FF until those two minutes elapse!)

Thanks for any help!

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.

Hi all - having an issue with Firefox sync...

I have a Windows desktop, a Linux desktop, two Linux laptops and an Android phone...all running Firefox and signed into the same Firefox account.

I've got them all set to sync bookmarks, but I've noticed that I'll often add a bookmark, organize it into a folder on one machine and then it will either never sync onto my other machines, or it will simply sync into the Bookmarks Menu rather than into whatever folder I had organized it into on all my other machines...

Is there a way to get it working properly on all my machines?

Thanks!
