Default font when printing?
With Firefox 86.0.
In the preference page (about:preferences) we can specify default fonts, but the choices of fonts are not used when printing a web page if the page does not specify a font. (In my environment, although the default font is set to sans-serif, the serif font is used for printed pages.) Can we specify default fonts for printing? If not, I strongly think that Firefox should use the same font as the one for display (as long as the font is available for printing).

Dear H.Hiro, I refer you to the following link https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-print-web-pages-firefox. if you don't find the solution, feel free to ask again here. I hope to be proved helpful.
@user3585702 Following the link, the following description was found: > If you want to edit the web page content prior to printing, > you can use an extension from Firefox Add-ons such as > Print Edit WE.
With the add-on "Print Edit WE", I could change fonts in the web page by selecting the whole web page and then pressing "Format" button and then selecting "Font Style".
But I think this is just a workaround; Since it is unnatural to use different fonts between the display and the printing, I hope Firefox itself (not add-on) uses the same font between the display and the printing. (Or, let Firefox have the option of fonts.)
Yes, the print output should use the same fonts. Can you report this to the developers over at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ (and ideally then drop a link to that report here)?
