Hello, is there a way to turn off the new print function. I want my print program to open and not a complicated print program that cannot be used by us. Since this new setting, we can no longer print properly and have to do all print jobs with a screen print.

Hello, what is the problem you find printing from the new overlay? Does it help to expand "Mehr Einstellungen" to access additional settings?

The blue link toward the bottom of the right column referring to the Systemdialog will call up the classic MacOS print dialog when needed.

If you prefer to skip the new print experience for now, there is a temporary preference to switch back:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste tab_mo and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the print.tab_modal.enabled preference to switch between the new experience (true) and the classic experience (false)

(4) If there is another preference named app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.print.tab_modal.enabled you can double-click that one to switch it to false as well. If you do not have that one, no need to create it.

Since you are setting to false, it will look roughly like this:

The problem there is no 'simplify page' like old print function. That function was helpful.

Hi, that is on the wish list for a future update.
