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.

But browser print only the default page. There is not customizations in the print. This has been working in other browsers. How can I resolve this?

I am unable to print in Firefox 64.0.0, either to a PDF program or a laser printer. Printer status shows that the document is spooling, but never completes. Disabling all plugins had no effect. The same page prints just fine with Internet Explorer 11.0.95 and Vivaldi 2.1.1337.51. I had no problems printing pages in 63.0.3 only a day or two ago.

I installed 60.4.0esr and it prints fine, so this may be more a report of a problem than a request for immediate help.

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.

Just got a used Dell Optiplex GX520 computer running Windows XP with a Canon printer. I can print from MS Word or MS Xcel fine, but keep getting a Crash message when using Firefox. Firefox was installed when I got the computer. I tried the "about:config" solution and there is no entry for "print_printer". Then I uninstalled Firefox, restarted the computer and re-installed Firefox. Tried printing and got the same problem.

Any suggestions on how to proceed.

Issue is only in FF, other browsers and desktop printing is unaffected.

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.

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!

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?

No browser is perfect, so I decided to give Firefox a chance. Really need the printing options Chrome has, to just right click anything, or even to select any area, and get the option to print it or to save as a PDF. It is almost a deal breaker for me. Also, I found some possible solutions in your blog, but there are in French! and can't find the translator!!!

I can't use the print button (on adress line or in pdf viewer) as the "shrink to fit size" always revert to 30%. I if change it and print from the print preview it still goes back to 30% next time. Have even tried deleting all "print." and "print_" setting from the "prefs.js" file. Still no change. Where is the default "shrink to fit" size store so I can change it manually?

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.

I haven't used coupon.com in a while and, although the plug in shows in the list, the printer does not work. I have reloaded the printer and upgraded Firefox to 37.0.1, but still it doesn't work. Prior to reloading the printer, it would just say "printing coupons" forever and never print. After re-loading it, the button doesn't work at all. It does, however work in IE.
