When I try to print any website using either CTRL-P or clicking the Print button on the preview page, the output is always single-sided. If I try to override by selecting 2-sided mode from the Printing Properties dialog, I cannot because the option is grayed out. This does not happen in other programs such as Microsoft Word, where the same 2-sided option works. My printer is a Brother MFC-J995DW.

Half the time when I need to print websites to PDF, using print to pdf function, Firefox does not print the webpage properly. I know that I can probably go in the printing setting to change it for that page and that might fix the problem. But for my project, I need to do this nearly 150 websites everyday. So fiddling around with every other website and Firefox print setting is not an option. I have attached a sample print to PDF to show the problem. When I print, half the content is hidden. In contrast, whenever I use Google Chrome, I never have this issue. The default printing settings just work, every single time in Chrome. I don't want to switch to Chrome because I want to support the Mozilla/Firefox mission. But the minor issues in Firefox are frustrating.

Between the lack of a translation tool that can translate the webpage and the poor default printing setting, I am nearly ready to switch. Firefox developers, if you're reading this, please fix this printing issue. While you're at it, please add an inbuilt webpage translation tool. Nobody want to copy and past webpages to translate them. I really want to stick with Mozilla, but you have to improve these little features within the browser.

Actually never mind, cannot attach the pdf to show the issue in this forum. FANTASTIC (sarcasm)! Here is a sample screen shot instead. It shows what the print out looks like when "print to pdf" file is saved.

I come from using google chrome and have never had any issues printing a pdf from gmail preview. When trying to do the same thing on firefox a new tab opens normally and the pdf appears to load (as shown by the progress highlight in the taskbar icon) but all I get is a blank page in the new tab. Is there any way for the pdf to load in the page and print?

TIA

Printing to PDF cuts off text/does not print full page

I've been looking for a new job, and I like to print out the job descriptions to pdf to save for later reference. However, I've noticed that Firefox does not always print out the full web page. It will often cut off text, or only print the first page. It's more noticeable when the website uses frames.

I've tried using "print selection", but it still seems to cut off the text, or still tries to print the full site/page and not my selection.

When I print in Chrome, I do not have any issues.

Anyone else notice this and maybe have a resolution?

Thanks.

I would like to print cooking recepies from the ESSEN und TRINKEN which I can show on my screen of my dell xps15 using the hp cl 281fdw printer. When I start the printing, there is just a message "peparing print" but nothing happens even after 15 minutes. On the other side using google the print is no problem at all. So I would like to ask how I can get the same results using firefox

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

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.

I have a strange problem that seems to recur and clear but I have no idea how to get the problem cleared when it happens. Here is how it goes. Normally I have no trouble printing simple pages to my printer which is attached to the network via cable to the router. Network is wireless.

I have a webpage that generates pages that I want to print duplex (the printer does support this) I also want to manually feed the paper for this job. I go to the print preview set it all up and print one page everything works fine. Then I can no longer get to the printer properties to change to and from duplex or to or from manual feed or change type of paper number of pages etc. Click on printer properties it just blinks at me and does nothing. Sometimes it will print basic single pages other times the requester goes away but it doesn't print. Sometimes it tells me some printer functions are not currently available. At some point it apparently clears itself but no idea how or what as I have cleared all the print_ bits from the profile, i've rebooted and it still does this. But the last time it did this was some time ago so I had forgotten about it and the first page today worked fine.

I can print the duplex pages fine from chrome or IE and more than one of them.

for the past couple versions of Firefox, I've experienced a problem with the Print Edit add-on. I use it often to modify and eliminate unwanted portions of pages before printing. The editing part works fine, but when I'm getting ready to print, I often need to check printer properties to make sure the printer is in the correct mode. If I check properties, the page won't print. I get an error message on the second try saying some of the required printer features are not present. I haven't had this sort of printer problem in any other program. I've tried to track down a cure in the add-on FAQ, but can't find any references to Print Edit. Am I the only one having this problem? I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate and a Canon 4500P ink jet printer.
