I have looked high and low for information on this in FF tutorials and through google and have found no answer My wife's Windows PC somehow lost these two commands from the 'file' section of the page

You can set print.tab_modal.enabled = false on the about:config page to revert to the old dialog.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

Print preview has apparently been incorporated into the print option. Selecting print will show the preview. If you are having issues with the print option showing the preview (such as it takes way too long on some web pages). You could set the preference (in about:config) print.tab_modal.enabled to be false. I wouldn't leave it there permanently but, it could help for the immediate future. Just don't forget you've set a preference off it's default setting.

Unfortunately in my wife's pc, PRINT does NOT include preview. Nor does it in mine, which still has all three functions in the file box

I did not say you could not have print preview. if you go the roundabout way of first selecting print and then the print dialog, you can make it work. What you cannot do is select 'print preview' nor 'print setup' directly from directly from the upper left hand file dialog box in one step from her pc (as she used to be able to do ) and I can still do now.

For now, please set `print.tab_modal.enabled` to `false` as fuffberry described above. That will disable the new print user interface and get you the two menu options 'print preview' and 'print setup' back.
