new print menu terrible

The latest version 84.0.1 for Mac now opens a new print menu, which is terrible. How do I force it to go away and permanently default to "print using the system dialog", which "Firefox help" never heard of. I can't find any way to get rid of it. It is a hateful change to Firefox, I hate it and my sister is in tears. She hates computers anyway. Seniors can't handle these dramatic changes.

I looked at that page. I don't want to reprogram the computer. I want to know where in Firefox preferences the checkbox is to turn it off. PLEASE put check boxes in preferences for such things. That is where they belong. To have to type config anything is poor programming. I save a lot of pages as PDFs on my Mac, now it takes twice as long. NEVER default to new things. It just pisses people off. It is not helpful and it is not kind.

This modal print window is a new feature and for now it is behind the pref I mentioned above and you can still revert to the old interface. This won't be possible forever and it is likely that this pref will be removed in a few releases when this feature is working properly and all major bugs are fixed.

Who decides these terrible ideas to change the basic way FF works? How about beta testing using 'normal' non-super techie /gamer types? FF disabled user Feedback. FF developers seem to expect users to have only the newest computer equipment, huge display screens, and lot's of extra memory. AND lot's of extra time on their hands to deal with and attempt to roll-back unannounced surprises foisted on users in the all too frequent updates. I stopped updating Firefox to side step the now unusable print function. This "feature" will NEVER 'work properly' because it is incompatible with the equipment and the way people interact with windows.
