Since Firefox's new update, when I try to print a page to fit on a regular 8.5 x 11 page, regardless what printer I choose or even what paper size I choose, the Scaling does not include items outside the margin of something Scaled at 100%. Instead, it just reduces what I see at 100% instead of including items outside the margins of 100%. If I choose larger page size, like 11x17, and select Fit to Page Width it will work better (not perfect). However, that's not what I want. Before, I could Scale something to 70%, let's say, and it would print everything I needed on a Landscape 8.5 x 11 page. Now, the Scaling will reduce what I saw at 100%, but it won't include anything outside of the margins of a 100% Scale to include items outside that margin. I know it sounds confusing, but if you play with it, you will see what I mean.

Is anyone else having this issue, and if so, were you able to resolve it? If yes, please explain how. If not, I think Firefox should fix this printing issue.

Unable to print preview or print consistently in Firefox v90.0.1 (64 bit) on MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 with recent Firefox update. This results in lost data when printing as sections/lines of text disappear when default used, fit to page used, scale used, etc.... in preview... then mirrored (not printed) on printer/paper. Can't trust print layout at this point... causes finnicking with print settings to show data on preview, never sure if it will print this way... need reliable PRINT PREVIEW & PRINT functions... please correct

I've already found the solution, but wanted to share that Version 90 created a problem with Print Preview and Shrink to Fit. Uninstalling Version 90 and re-installing Version 89 fixed the problem. With Version 90 the Print Preview function (which I love) didn't work properly. When I try to Shrink to Fit any page, the first page shrinks, but the second page isn't pulled into the first page. Also, there's missing information on both pages. If there's another solution so I can use Version 90, please tell me. If not, and Mozilla is doing away with Print Preview (and Shrink to Fit), I'll have to do away with Mozilla Firefox. Sorry, but that's the main reason I use Firefox over Chrome. Perhaps I can find another browser to do what I want. I hope not though.

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?

Chrome has a better printing feature than Firefox.

it's impossible to print shipping lable through Firefox, no matter how you set, it keep on sepate into two pages lable.

I have to switch into Chrome everytime I print shipping lables of my store orders.

I have screenshot to demonstrate the trouble caused by Firefox.

My question is why Firefox can't make the printing feature same like Chrome? if you can't make the same, how to print small lables(like 10cm by 15cm) though Firefox?

Hello all,

When trying to print a PDF in Landscape format, Firefox turns the page itself, but not the content. The problem happens with multiple versions of Firefox, and I couldn't find a thread describing the same problem. Is there any known way of fixing the issue? (I attached an image of what happens below)

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.

I have a color printer but I want to print in black and white and so to change this option, you need to the print properties button but the button does not come up in the print dialog. There is a preferences button but I am pretty sure that is not it because that just opens another app with no option to change the color setting.

When I print from Chrome or Brave browsers from our local online newpaper app, I get one print dialog with the item I've asked to print shown in the preview. Perfect. When I print from Firefox I get the same thing, but on top of that is another print dialog previewing a blank page that I have to get rid of before I can get to the actual print dialog I want.

So I have to "cancel" the bogus, top dialog that wants to print a blank page, and then the print dialog that I want is available.

Obviously I want to get rid of the first print dialog that wants to print a blank page.

I've gone through the Mozilla "Fix printing problems in Firefox" page, which includes taking all statements with arguments starting with "print_" out of prefs.js in my profile, and that didn't help at all. Exactly the same extra print dialog after doing that.

So I really have no idea why Firefox is doing this when I ask it to print, any ideas how to troubleshoot or fix?

Thanks!

I have tried every other browser on this machine(Safari,Chrome,Opera) and they carry the page title to the filename when saving it as a pdf (Ie "Ask your question to our community of user.pdf" for this page). I have run this browser in safe mode, used a newly created profile but the problem still remains. I ran a new Firefox Developer Edition version which had the same results. Then I ran Firefox 72.0 which did everything as it should. So my belief is there is some bug in 73.0 that is causing this

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.
