Firefox "Print Preview" has disappeared from the File menu in 84.0.2; all I have now is "Print", which brings up a Microsoft Edge style print dialog. Is this an upgrading error, or is it just the way Firefox will be now?

This problem might be unique to Mac OS, and may not even be a Firefox issue at all, but I had to try and see if there was an answer in here somewhere. I frequently use the "copy-image" command from the right-click contextual menu from within Firefox. When I paste that image into a text message for example, it's converted to a TIFF, regardless of the actual format it's in on the website I found it. Unfortunately, Android phones won't accept a text with a TIFF image, causing a delivery failure. There's more reasons why this is annoying, but that's the main one. Is there any way to make sure that copy command retains the original format of the image when copied to the clipboard? Thanks.

I'm only able to open the Preferences window by typing about:preferences in the address bar. If I keep a Preferences tab available, I'm able to navigate to that window using the aforementioned methods.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

I am afraid that I am very confused about the changes to this site. Are the FAQs the only way to learn about the changes, or is there some documentation I am not presently seeing?

In addition, what happened to my older account on this site?

And where exactly are all the other posts, like I would expect to be seeing as if it were a regular forum platform?

Maybe I am more than confused. Maybe I am completely lost. Yes, my own stupidity might be a major factor for this confusion I am guilty of!

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )

I have the following simple script in ann html-document within a nested frameset:

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript"> </script>

The script is activated by the "onload" function in the body. This works flawlessly in Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari and Opera, bit not in Firefox (latest version).

Anyone any idea how to get it working in Firefox?

I'm tired of this brand minimalistic crap nonsense. In 2017, I didn't like the change but it didn't warrant me to do anything. The new logo doesn't even look like a globe. Just revert it. And I'm not writing this because of "THE FOX IS GONE" meme. I know it's still there. The logo just looks really bad. Please revert it.

If I try to edit the saved loging to manually add ww.abc.com/admin/ ( user / password ) it says the user name already exists.

I want the username/saved login to be tied to the login page not only the domain?

With "print on both sides" checked, the "backside" of each page is printed inverted top to bottom. I believe this began after the latest update. I'd like to revert to the old, more conventional, and (for me, at least) easier-to-use older system.

So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?

I find it really bad, if i post a bug and you just archive without even try to fix the problem! It makes me extremely angry! Bad behavior!

Please stop that and re-open the case.

Jan Ps. same system (Lenovo Thinkpad X300 with Xubuntu 16.04LTS 64bit (account A) )now running Firefox 85.0.1 64bit can now print, I can't find any mentioning in release notes to how previous version 75.0 and now this one is different and why this one now can print.

It would be nice to get this solved, since other people here has had this one too and it seems to jump between versions and OS(linux an windows).

in the new version of Firefox 86.0 the " print preview " has been removed = WHY???

I now have to install an additional add-on again!

I don't understand why this was done, what sense or logic does it make? And can't even Firefox run for a few months without a change?

What advice could you give me on how to get back to the old "print preview"?

The logic that remains for me is to change the browser soon.

With kind regards

Having a problem with printing since moving to FF 86.0. Print is automatically set up for my Brother MFC-J895W (LAN connection) to print 2-sided and back-to-front, but is printing the 2nd page upside down. I've tried going into about:config and deleting the entry for "print.print", as well as editing the prefs.js and deleting everything that has "print_", but no help.
