I have the following simple script in ann html-document within a nested frameset:

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript"> </script>

The script is activated by the "onload" function in the body. This works flawlessly in Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari and Opera, bit not in Firefox (latest version).

Anyone any idea how to get it working in Firefox?

With "print on both sides" checked, the "backside" of each page is printed inverted top to bottom. I believe this began after the latest update. I'd like to revert to the old, more conventional, and (for me, at least) easier-to-use older system.

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!

So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?

I find it really bad, if i post a bug and you just archive without even try to fix the problem! It makes me extremely angry! Bad behavior!

Please stop that and re-open the case.

Jan Ps. same system (Lenovo Thinkpad X300 with Xubuntu 16.04LTS 64bit (account A) )now running Firefox 85.0.1 64bit can now print, I can't find any mentioning in release notes to how previous version 75.0 and now this one is different and why this one now can print.

It would be nice to get this solved, since other people here has had this one too and it seems to jump between versions and OS(linux an windows).

I've attached an image of how almost every article appears. Any idea why this is happening? How do I return it to showing the article and pictures without this new format being applied. Thanks

in the new version of Firefox 86.0 the " print preview " has been removed = WHY???

I now have to install an additional add-on again!

I don't understand why this was done, what sense or logic does it make? And can't even Firefox run for a few months without a change?

What advice could you give me on how to get back to the old "print preview"?

The logic that remains for me is to change the browser soon.

With kind regards

Having a problem with printing since moving to FF 86.0. Print is automatically set up for my Brother MFC-J895W (LAN connection) to print 2-sided and back-to-front, but is printing the 2nd page upside down. I've tried going into about:config and deleting the entry for "print.print", as well as editing the prefs.js and deleting everything that has "print_", but no help.

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.  )

Today i turned on firefox running the latest ubuntu platform and had colored squares and dots all over the web pages. If I move the mouse or type the squares colored black, blue, aqua and green move with the mouse or typing all over the display like snow. I have gone over the troubleshooting steps, I have uninstalled and reloaded mozilla firefox. The only way I can stop this is to go to safe mode. I have downloaded two other browsers today and do not have this problem with the other two browsers, or with any of the software programs on the computer. Any ideas?

Looks like I need to rollback to Firefox version 84. Updated to version 86. However, printing from Reader View takes over twice the number of printed pages as Simplify Page function found in earlier version. The font in Reader View is much too large for efficient printing.

The two uploaded images print the same webpage article, but earlier Firefox version takes 16-pages, while version 86 takes over twice that many, 35-pages.

Are there about:config settings that can reduce font size in Reader View, or do I have to rollback to version 84?

When I want to save a newspaper article as a PDF file in Firefox, Firefox asks if I want to open it with Firefox. It's good. I then also save this file in a folder on the PC. Then I want to print this file too. With several pages as two sides, as a duplex print. For a few days now, the backs of the print, i.e. the even sides, have no longer been printed in advance, but instead are printed upside down. As it seems to be happening in the USA. In the USA, pages are not stapled on the side, but on the top. This is not good. Please change it so that it can be stapled on the page and then read like a book. Not always having to turn it upside down! Thank you, that is very important in Germany! Günther Grau
