Hi, Since a couple of days ago the "Print Preview" feature is not working properly again. I think we had an browser update. We had another one today and I was hoping the problem was going to be fixed but it was not.

I have the Print set to old (false) mode. I have used this mode for years to print all of my documents and webpages.

This is what is happening. I do my print preview and adjust the scale number accordingly. The print preview shows, I adjust number of pages, preferences etc. then hit print.

The page that prints is not complete. Is missing the part of the right side and bottom. I have not changed any printer settings. I have also changed it back to the NEW(true) printer mode an the exact thing happens. It happens with both webpages and documents. I first realized what what going on when I printed my bank statement and it was missing the right side and bottom of each page.

THIS IS NOT PRINTER PROBLEM!!!!! Using the EGDE and Explorer browsers, the pages print perfectly so it has to be a Firefox problem.

Can you please help me solve this problem. I hate to have to use another browser just to print. I have enclosed pictures of what is happening.

Hello Community, Upon updating Firefox today, some sites are cutting off the majority of the page and printing in the top-left corner. I've tried the following and none have helped:

Close and reopen Firefox Refresh Firefox Uninstall and reinstall Firefox Restart my computer Print from the system dialog Print from the Firefox dialog Cleared all add-ons Print from a different computer with a different FF account Print to a different printer Print to PDF

I've attached the PDF (after converting to JPG as required by this page) which was printed through Firefox which shows the issue. The same page prints normally in Edge and Chrome. I printed the same page yesterday without issue and when I did the test from another computer with a different FF account, it printed normally, the browser updated and had the problem so it's definitely something with the most recent FF update.

This may seem minor in scope since it only effects certain sites but it's a huge problem for me as I print quite a few pages from this site daily for order processing. Thank you to anyone who can help!

Since Firefox's new update, when I try to print a page to fit on a regular 8.5 x 11 page, regardless what printer I choose or even what paper size I choose, the Scaling does not include items outside the margin of something Scaled at 100%. Instead, it just reduces what I see at 100% instead of including items outside the margins of 100%. If I choose larger page size, like 11x17, and select Fit to Page Width it will work better (not perfect). However, that's not what I want. Before, I could Scale something to 70%, let's say, and it would print everything I needed on a Landscape 8.5 x 11 page. Now, the Scaling will reduce what I saw at 100%, but it won't include anything outside of the margins of a 100% Scale to include items outside that margin. I know it sounds confusing, but if you play with it, you will see what I mean.

Is anyone else having this issue, and if so, were you able to resolve it? If yes, please explain how. If not, I think Firefox should fix this printing issue.

Unable to print preview or print consistently in Firefox v90.0.1 (64 bit) on MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 with recent Firefox update. This results in lost data when printing as sections/lines of text disappear when default used, fit to page used, scale used, etc.... in preview... then mirrored (not printed) on printer/paper. Can't trust print layout at this point... causes finnicking with print settings to show data on preview, never sure if it will print this way... need reliable PRINT PREVIEW & PRINT functions... please correct

I've already found the solution, but wanted to share that Version 90 created a problem with Print Preview and Shrink to Fit. Uninstalling Version 90 and re-installing Version 89 fixed the problem. With Version 90 the Print Preview function (which I love) didn't work properly. When I try to Shrink to Fit any page, the first page shrinks, but the second page isn't pulled into the first page. Also, there's missing information on both pages. If there's another solution so I can use Version 90, please tell me. If not, and Mozilla is doing away with Print Preview (and Shrink to Fit), I'll have to do away with Mozilla Firefox. Sorry, but that's the main reason I use Firefox over Chrome. Perhaps I can find another browser to do what I want. I hope not though.

Hi! I've switched to Firefox quite recently and I love pretty much everything about the browser. The only problem I've been experiencing is that whenever I try to print a page the whole browser crashes. I've tried removing all the settings for printing in prefs.js but that didn't seem to help in any way and the crashes don't turn up in the about:crashes tab. Has anyone else been experiencing this and perhaps knows how to fix it?

I used to take print to study contents offline and I almost always use Mozilla as a browser. Recently I noticed that I was unable to print a full page in a simple website. Understandable that firefox team has been busy working upon the print bugs, but the page and the website I am referring to is Purely HTML and CSS; and for some reason firefox cuts out the rest of the pages from print except for the first.(i.e) to say it prints only the top part of the page..

Though I work with Ubuntu I have crosschecked with Win8.1 and TOR version of firefox which had the same shortcoming, with the website I was referring to. However other browsers such as the Safari and Chrome seem to do fine with this regard. Kindly check for yourselves and let me know if I am going wrong somewhere. Also please Avoid recommending any add ons to accomplish the task at hand.

The thing is the website I was referring to is of very simple make and may help the team to shoot the bug if any, with an easier test case such as this.

With love and Thanks

Chrome has a better printing feature than Firefox.

it's impossible to print shipping lable through Firefox, no matter how you set, it keep on sepate into two pages lable.

I have to switch into Chrome everytime I print shipping lables of my store orders.

I have screenshot to demonstrate the trouble caused by Firefox.

My question is why Firefox can't make the printing feature same like Chrome? if you can't make the same, how to print small lables(like 10cm by 15cm) though Firefox?

Printing is damaged. All margins are set to zero. When you look at the print preview, you can see that the width of the document must be smaller and the height must be larger. With the red boxes, I made sure that it was A4. It is displayed correctly in other browsers, but not in Firefox. See the screenshot. What can I do?

For several months my firefox (now 76) will not print webpages. It use to work perfectly. However, for the last 4 - 5 months I get the error "an error occurred while printing." I have "refreshed" firefox; done a restore point for Windows 10; reinstalled firefoxe; checked firefox safe mode; done the config:about and deleted print_printer to no avail; done the pres.js recommendations; and followed everything firefox has suggested over the last few months and nothing has fixed the printing error/issue. I use firefox and then have to use Opera to print my page. If I can't resolve, I'll be making Opera my default and I don't want to do that. Any other clues or suggestions?

I received one reply that suggested I do the above, which doesn't solve the problem. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. I need this to start working.

When I go to print menu and select print, I get a box that shows me two options to print. One from Microsoft XPS Doc Writer and one from OneNote for Windows 10. My default printer isn't even shown. When I go to find printer, I get an icon with a computer that says USER-PC. I have gone in and selected my printer to be the default. It won't even show up. However, when I go to print from Explorer or any other area besides Firefox, which I love, it shows up and works perfectly. How do I get Firefox to default to that printer. I don't even know what XPS Doc Writer is or OneNote. I am not a tech person, so if you have a solution, could you please give me a step-by-step that even an idiot could understand? Your wisdom and kindness are appreciated greatly. If you would like to communicate with me privately, that is great. I just don't want my email out there for the world, as you may already have guessed. Thank you in advance for you patient understanding. P.S. I do have the current version of FF.
