Missing "Print Preview" on File menu after upgrading to a new laptop

I recently upgraded from a Dell XPS laptop to a Dell XPS Inspiron laptop and had my old laptop cloned to the new one. There's been only one change noted when using the new laptop -- whenever I have Firefox open, and want to print the page displayed, the File menu no longer offers the option "Print Preview", which I used all the time on my old laptop. Any idea why it's disappeared, and how to get it back? Thanks.

When you print in Firefox it should now always opens a print preview first. (If you select `File -> Print`, does the preview work for you?) Since `File -> Print` should now open a preview, the `File -> Print Preview` menu item was redundant and was removed.

Thanks for replying, Jonathan. When using the "Print" option on the File menu, it gives me a smaller pop-up window that does not display most screens (i.e., Ancestry document images, and others), and does not offer the editing options (like "Simplify Page") that I had using the "Print Preview" option (which also gave me a full-size window to work in).

I would suggest you remove the "Print" option and return the old "Print Preview" option instead. It was MUCH better.

Jonathan, I've also noted that the duplex feature isn't working right either. The front page comes out OK, but the back page is upside-down. It's never done that before. Can you fix that, please, ASAP? Thank you.
