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?

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!

Having an issue with youtube as of late on firefox. The ability to see "history" list, "watch later" list, or utilizing the save function do not work because I am constantly having to login. For some reason the ability to see lists or to utilize any functions on the youtube website do not work properly because I am unable to remain logged in. Is anyone else having difficulty with youtube?

I use 85.0.2-64 bit on a PC.

For the last month or so. Perhaps since the last update or two. I can't login to my bank.

Details:

-I try it on Edge, and it works.

-When it fails, I get the bank website's standard failure error message: "Your username and/or password are incorrect. Please try again";

-I've repeatedly checked on the correctness of my ID & PW repeatedly over the last month;

-I use Norton PW manager, but I have back-up on a secure thumb drive. I try the PW using my backup, and it still fails;

-I try typing my ID & PW in manually, and it still fails;

-The only successful workaround on Firefox is to change my PW. Then I can login: once;

-I do have add-ons, but I deactivated all of them, restarted Firefox, and it still fails.

I've used Firefox for decades, but not being able to do simple banking is a strong argument for using Edge. Do you have a remedy or a suggestion for this?

Hi community, when i have only one tab opened in Firefox i can click on the "close tab"-X or Ctrl+W. This action will close Firefox, but it won't close the tab. So when i start Firefox this last opened tab, which usually would be closed after clicking on the X, will open at start again.

This behavior drives me crazy. If i want to close Firefox with the only tab opened remaining until restart, i usually would click the red X of the Windows forms control elements.

Is there any option in "about:config" which really can close the last remaining tab, while also closing Firefox?

Thank you

How can I set two-sided printing to rotate on the long axis (so both sides are printed in the same direction, and when you turn the page you can keep reading easily)? With the new upgrade it keeps defaulting to printing on the short axis (so the second side is printed upside down) which makes it very difficult to read smoothly. This has always been easy to set previously. Now the Print menu only allows you to toggle Two-Sided Printing on and off, not to choose the axis. The system dialog does include this setting, in theory, but it doesn't work. I have tried changing it to Long-Edge Binding several times. Each time I change the setting and print immediately, and it still prints with Short-Edge Binding which I do not want. Help! If this can't be fixed I will need to stop using two-sided printing entirely, which will mean wasting a lot of paper.

I can't find a way to enlarge the font size in menu or bookmarks toolbar, or the drop down menu and the bookmarks themselves. It is ridiculously miniscule and I have to use a magnifier to see it - I have Fuchs Dystrophy so my eyesight varies from day to day, but 16-18 size is usually ok. Can anyone point the way if any please?

I have changed the settings in about:config, and also with options in the tools menu on Firefox, and I am still having problems, specifically with Fox News, but also other sites that allow a video to automatically play and blast audio. It is very disconcerting that there doesn't seem to be a way to stop this from happening. Can you help? I am using Firefox 86.

I'm surprised that a community-based web developer would flood its users with constant messages. I'm referring to when I open Firefox for Windows, and constantly receive message banners at the bottom of the browser. You'd half expect it from a commercial web developer, but even they refrain from doing that.

Please stop this practice as it's very annoying and distracting. Perhaps a menu option for "Suggestions" where the user may opt to view such messages is a better idea than thrusting them constantly on the user.

In better news, I've noticed Firefox is a faster, less clunky browser than it has been in the past - good work :)

I had accidentally refreshed my Firefox, and after adding back all my old data, I found that the pocket stories were missing form my new tab. I manged to fix this issue, but when I go into new tab settings to make it show more than 3 stories, there are no options for them. It just gives me options for search, top sites, highlights, and snippets. How do I get these settings back?
