1. How can I get back the print preview button?

2. This is the biggest problem right now. I'm trying to print a document, and Firefox no longer lets me access my printer settings, and is printing on both sides of a piece of paper. I DON"T WANT IT TO. How do I stop this?

TIA,

Printer options comes from the printer driver software that Firefox browser uses for printing.

No it doesn't. I'm running Windows 7, and Firefox 110.0.1. In the past when I went to print in Firefox,

it would connect to my printer's setting control.  There I could choose single or double sided, the quality (draft, normal, best), Color, Black & white, portrait or landscape, and the number of pages I wanted to print.

With your new "interface", I no longer have any control of the single/double side, the quality, control of the color, etc.

Please go back to your old printer interface. The print preview button should be brought back, and then link to the printer's printer control for settings.

You can set print.prefer_system_dialog = true on the about:config page.

You can search the Add-ons website for a suitable extension.
