Firefox fails to display the web UI from my Canon printer properly. It should display as a GUI, but Firefox displays it as a text page. I tried "safe mode" but that did not change anything. The page displays properly in other browsers. Screen shot samples showing a page in Firefox and the same page in Edge is attached.

Printing Webpages Using Firefox: Issue Resolved

Version 73.0.1

When printing a webpage from Firefox (Open Menu->Print), the print preview mode is displayed. On most websites with multiple pages, each page displays the full text in order.

However, on some websites with multiple pages, the first page displays text but the second page only shows the header in the top left and the website in the top right but the page is blank. On other webpages, full webpage text is displayed but it is out of order.

When using Opera, the webpages that showed blank text or out of order text in Firefox are displayed completely and in the correct order.

Is it a website browser compatibility and configuration issue (the webpage is only configured correctly for certain browsers) or Is this a known Firefox glitch that causes some pages not to be displayed correctly in print preview mode?

I hope that my question is clear.

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.

We have a problem with printing through the firefox of the latest version of 62.0. But there is also a problem with printing in the previous version of 61.02. Print starts only in the old version of the browser, with each print necessary to do Firefox cleaning. Maybe some problem with cache or something like this, but how can i solve it?

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 am using Windows 7 and the latest version of Firefox with several Brother printers. The body of the email prints okay but Firefox will not print a received or sent email which shows the attachments which appear on the email. In Yahoo the attachments are in blue but even the black text which states there are attachments does not print. Is this a Firefox problem or a Yahoo problem? Anyone have an answer? Aspen

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.

So how can I get it back? Or do I need to switch browser?

I upgraded to Quantum 69.0 64 bit a day or two ago. Today I have discovered that when I go to print a web page from FF, it does not list my home network printer as a choice. I tested other apps, e.g. Chrome and MS Word and Adobe Rdr, they all still show my home network printer in their printer list, and I was able to print to it from Chrome. I have powercycled my printer, and rebooted my WIN7 PC, no help. My home network printer lists as Canon MF4270 Daves Office. My email is daveryan.cincinnati@gmail.com

Hi! I've switched to Firefox quite recently and I love pretty much everything about the browser. The only problem I've been experiencing is that whenever I try to print a page the whole browser crashes. I've tried removing all the settings for printing in prefs.js but that didn't seem to help in any way and the crashes don't turn up in the about:crashes tab. Has anyone else been experiencing this and perhaps knows how to fix it?

This will always happen with the Epson TM-T20 printer after successfully printing approximately 40 receipts. After restarting Firefox the problem is repeated.

The printer driver is the latest version 5.09E of 2018-01-15 but the driver version does not affect this issue.

I have tested individual versions of Firefox with factory default settings. This problem first appeared in version 50.0b1. Firefox 49.0.2 and older work well with this printer.

This is on OSX 10.12.6. I am an 'admin' user on the Mac.

This problem happens only on my own OSX login account: printing works fine from other login accounts (who are also admin-level users) on the same computer.

If I try to print a regular page I get the following results: 1) I see the "print" dialog (select the printer, single-sided or duplex, etc.). When I press "Print" I see: 2) Print Preview Error: an error occurred while printing. When I press "OK" I see: 3) Print Error: An error occurred while printing.


I tried to fix this in three ways and in the following order: (a) starting in safe mode; (b) stoping and restarting using the Refresh Firefox option; and (c) creating a brand new profile. None of these fixed the problem. I still am unable to print, and I get the result described above.

Does anyone have any other options to consider? I really don't want to lose my history, bookmarks or stored passwords!

Printing challenge

My relative does some “searches” and when she finds something she likes, she wants to print a page for reference.

BUT, when she prints a webpage from some websites, the Firefox printer controls are ignored. Meaning, she sets the printer controls to print just the first page, “Print >> Pages from 1 to 1”.

The ensuing pint seems to ignore the controls and the printer may spew 1 to x number of pages.

Yes, the source webpage can be scrolled quite far down, so it will never fit on one print page. Nonetheless, the controls shown above appear to be ignored with the resulting large volume print (e.g.: the entire webpage is sent to the printer” in lieu of just one page.

My relative does not have the finesses to select an area, so an add-on that requires an extra step or two may not be useful.

Sending to a PDF is also problematic as that requires an extra few steps to open, select and print just the first page.

Any thoughts, suggestions?

BTW, the laptop is up-to-date in all regards: OS, applications, drivers, etc.. Its not a cache issue. Its happened over a period of last two years, but I just decided to see/ask if there is a suggested strategy or solution.

Thanks.
