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.

I have a Canon MG6250 connected via USB. I run Windows 7 with all latest updates and currently the Firefox version is 38.0.5. For quite some time, probably about a year, starting after a new version of Firefox I think , I have trouble printing. (Sorry I can't remember with which version it started happening.) Unless I wait for the printer to ready itself completely, although the print dialogue box appears and I click Print, often (not always) nothing happens. If I try to print again I get a pop-up box saying the print function is not available. If I then close Firefox and try to restart it, it tells me that Firefox is already running; I have to end its process via Task Manager. Often I want to print from several tabs, already loaded with the pages to be printed. Even if I manage to get the first tab to print, somewhere along the line the same thing often happens: before I've printed the last tab's page I get the pop-up box again and I have to end the Firefox process to make it work again. I can usually prevent it from happening if I monitor my computer's CPU activity (via System Mechanic) and make sure all activity has stopped after printing one tab before I try to print the next; this makes printing from Firefox frustratingly slow!

I do not have any printing problems whatsoever from any other application.

Note that fairly recently, due to a system drive failure, I re-installed Windows and all my software. I hoped that a by-product of doing this might fix the Firefox printing problem, but it hasn't.

I'd be most grateful for a solution to this problem.

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?

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 have printed to the new HP printer and this works fine, but Firefox persists in keeping the old laserjet as the defualt. I have disabled the old printer in CUPS, reset the printer settings in Firefox and deleted all printer settings from the prefs.js file, but Firefox persists in selecting this old printer first. I don't want to delete it as it was difficult to install and I might want to add it back to my network later.

Hello. I'm running Firefox Quantum 66.0 64-bit on Mac OS 10.13.6

Articles on this help site seem to indicate that "print preview" should be the first screen when you try to print a webpage, but I can't get it to work. I've tried "command-p", and by using the menu and choosing print. Should I get a "print preview" screen when I print something? If not, where do I go to submit this as a feature request?

Thank you, Chris

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

I just installed Ubuntu 18.04. When I was using windows I could print preview and change things in the "Page Setup" like:

headers and footers print background colors and images adjust margins

for some reason now i don't get those options when i go to the page set up, i only get:

format for paper size and orientation.

everything prints, but i can't change any of the more advanced setting. i included a screen shot of what i see, to show that i'm not missing an options tab or something. i know i can modify most of these settings in about:config but i used to be able to change things in the "Page setup" menu. what changed? i doesn't seem to matter which printer i choose either. the options are always the same.

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.

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.

Clicking the menu button File=Print... has for a long time failed to provide useful information on any of my printers, including CutePDF and physical printer. Even a short web-page seems to be converted to a single long page perhaps with something at the bottom which never shows.

The failure of window.print() has been pointed out and 'solved' by


Chosen Solution

You use document.getElementById("btnPrint"), but you only specify the NAME attribute in the input tags and not the ID.

So you will have to add the ID as well to make Firefox find that element.


which of course it utterly useless for others than the page's author and certainly not for the File=>Print ... in Firefox.

Presently I'm hit with a need to print the reaction on my annual tax-report. Scaring.

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.

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?
