Firefox automatically updated last night, and once again defaults to its own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job -- which wastes a lot of time every time I want to print.

I can't find a setting to choose my system printer dialog box as default. the solutions from last year no longer work (about:config, then tab_mo, then print.tab_modal.enabled, set to false.

Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser because the Firefox dialog box sucks.

Seemingly randomly, when opening a new tab, FF freezes up completely.

This has only started happening today. After starting my PC, I opened up FF. Upon opening Dicord in a tab (3rd tab, YouTube and Twitter were previous and still open) and clicking on it while loading, it froze. A white line appeared at the top, and FF overlapped, and thus hid, my task bar. Waiting (5 min) did nothing, so I clicked and the "... is not responding" dialogue popped up, and I closed it.

Upon starting again, it restored the tabs that were previously open. I could swap between use them normally. However, when I opened a link in a new tab, it froze again.

After another restart, not even the new empty tab would load, freezing again, and every try afterwards.

Starting in troubleshooting mode or reseting did nothing (though I may not have waited long enough, an 'Old Firefox Data' folder was created and filled, but no window opened). I ran the installer again, which resulted in me having to redo some Addon settings, but worked fine for a while (~1h maybe?), before freezing again. A PC restart fixed it again for a longer while, but then it happened again, this time while trying to write this. Additionally, there was a freeze while clicking into the Subject field here, after which the even the new tabs froze again.

Another PC restart seems to have allowed me to use FF again, while I tipped this on my phone.

Hardware acceleration is off, History deletes every time I close FF, Addons on or off don't seem to matter. CPU and RAM aren't even near fully used. Drivers are up to date, Windows as well. (Running a System File Check right now, as I have upgraded to Win10 only a few days ago, although I was able to use FF during those days without issue, and the PC has been shut down in between as well. The SFC said it found and repaired files, though it didnt say anything other than that, so that might just be a "We found no issues and fixed those." translation kinda thing.)

I really don't know what else to do.

Prior to FF97 a simply setting to "false" the about:config, print.tab_modal.enabled setting allowed FF to always use the system dialog box when printing. However, in FF97, this is no longer the case. How can I set FF97 to always use the system print dialog box??

I almost always use Preview printing on my Macs to avoid multiple pages of garbage so this is fairly important to me...and it might help to save a few trees...

How can I restore my old system print dialog window as my default, instead of getting the horrible new print window that now appears? I have already set both the print.tab_modal.enabled preference and the app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.print.tab_modal.enabled preference to FALSE. This did NOT solve the problem! I knew updating Firefox to version 97 would be a huge mistake, and of course it was. I'm so irritated...

I'm using Windows 10 Professional. Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi, how do we set Firefox 97 to use the os/system print dialog?

Before Firefox 97 we could change these settings in about:config:

print.tab_modal.enabled = false widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal = true

But they are both gone now.

There is now widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.print, which is an integer (2 by default).

But no matter what integer it is set to, we still don't get the os/system print dialog.

We are using Arch Linux, but we don't expect that to be of any importance -- after all, it worked before Firefox 97.

Thanks for your time :o)

In the last Firefox update, you changed the printing user interface AGAIN. The print.tab_modal.enabled=false config option no longer works, and I can't easily re-scale my page when I print. Is there a new option which restores the original behavior or is there some other remedy that will let me print using the Windows System dialogue?

I just updated from Firefox 96.0.3 to Firefox 97. When I try to print I get the Firefox preview, even though I have print.tab_modal.enabled set to false. Please fix it so that I can get the print system dialog without going via the Firefox preview. Note that I have now reverted to Firefox 96.0.3 and won't update from this unless the problem is fixed.

Cannot get out of the terrible firefox print dialog. Literally no one wants this print dialog, it is a waste of time, and does not support all the printer options. I do not want to have to click "print using the system dialog" every time. Please restore the print.tab_modal.enabled = false functionality immediately. Or better yet get rid of your stupid print dialog.

thanks

Firefox 97 installed itself , and now I have two print dialogs each time I go to print something. I have the system print dialog , and the Firefox print dialog. Does anyone one know a way to turn of the Firefox dialog in 97?

I fixed it in earlier versions by setting

print.tab_modal.enabled = false

...but in Firefox 97 it seems this no longer does the job.

Grateful for any advice.

Why, with not very many active open windows, and just after opening, is FF using 175% of my CPU, not counting all the separate listings in my Activity Monitor. Plus it's using nearly all 16 GBs of my RAM. With every new update, I pray it will mean the browser will just work, and not use up all my computer's resources, but it just never does. Pretty soon, more & more of us will just give up on this browser, which used to work better, years ago, and has only gone downhill since.

How do I stop this BS? I have several hundred pages bookmarked, and now after the last time I allowed firefox to update, I am unable to access 90% of them as I get the above message.

I would hope that I don't have to change browsers as all of the others I am aware of suck.

When I asked you how to block unwanted pop-ups, I got this message: "If you see the address bar with the Tracking Protection button and the Site Identity button (a shield and a padlock) in the pop-up window, the pop-up is coming from Firefox."

          That doesn't help at all.  Firefox is the most annoying of all, as it's the most incessant.  I've tried several times to block update notifica-

tions; If I get any response at all, I get only irrelevant, UN-helpful,responses. Each time I try to find the answer, the con- versation/thread is either locked, or mislabeled as "solved".

           I REALLY don't want to have to give up on firefox completely, so can you PLEASE provide a shortcut or tell me how to solve this problem myself?


Thanks, ML
