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.

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.

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 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.

Hi,

I have a problem with using a Web-based application.

Before the last FF update to version 76.0, I was able to by-pass the Print Dialog tab after clicking "generate report" link, and instead of automate printing it - save it to PDF file in "download folder" (when I clicked "cancel" button in Print Dialog tab, the <<<yellow stripe>>> appeared at the top of webpage, with the option "save file").

Now, after the 75.0 ==> 76.0 update, the <<<yellow stripe>>> doesn't appear anymore, and I can print the report only by Print Dialog tabl., without ability to save it to my disk drive.

Can I have my "yellow stripe" back? Or do I have to reinstall FF back to version 75.0?

Hello Community, Upon updating Firefox today, some sites are cutting off the majority of the page and printing in the top-left corner. I've tried the following and none have helped:

Close and reopen Firefox Refresh Firefox Uninstall and reinstall Firefox Restart my computer Print from the system dialog Print from the Firefox dialog Cleared all add-ons Print from a different computer with a different FF account Print to a different printer Print to PDF

I've attached the PDF (after converting to JPG as required by this page) which was printed through Firefox which shows the issue. The same page prints normally in Edge and Chrome. I printed the same page yesterday without issue and when I did the test from another computer with a different FF account, it printed normally, the browser updated and had the problem so it's definitely something with the most recent FF update.

This may seem minor in scope since it only effects certain sites but it's a huge problem for me as I print quite a few pages from this site daily for order processing. Thank you to anyone who can help!

Printing is damaged. All margins are set to zero. When you look at the print preview, you can see that the width of the document must be smaller and the height must be larger. With the red boxes, I made sure that it was A4. It is displayed correctly in other browsers, but not in Firefox. See the screenshot. What can I do?

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?

Hi, Since a couple of days ago the "Print Preview" feature is not working properly again. I think we had an browser update. We had another one today and I was hoping the problem was going to be fixed but it was not.

I have the Print set to old (false) mode. I have used this mode for years to print all of my documents and webpages.

This is what is happening. I do my print preview and adjust the scale number accordingly. The print preview shows, I adjust number of pages, preferences etc. then hit print.

The page that prints is not complete. Is missing the part of the right side and bottom. I have not changed any printer settings. I have also changed it back to the NEW(true) printer mode an the exact thing happens. It happens with both webpages and documents. I first realized what what going on when I printed my bank statement and it was missing the right side and bottom of each page.

THIS IS NOT PRINTER PROBLEM!!!!! Using the EGDE and Explorer browsers, the pages print perfectly so it has to be a Firefox problem.

Can you please help me solve this problem. I hate to have to use another browser just to print. I have enclosed pictures of what is happening.

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?

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.
