Firefox 119.0 Print Preview missing orientation option!

The "Layout.css.page-size.enabled" configuration parameter = False ,worked effectively in previous versions, but after updating to Firefox 119.0, it no longer works whether I set it to True or False.

Orientation option is missing when I try to print documents from a website. The Firefox Print Preview window, which usually allows orientation choices for printing, is now not available.

Please advise. Thanks!

I posted a less convenient workaround in this thread:

The use of @media print @page size causes firefox after updating to 119.* to hide the portrait / landscape option as you can try with this html:

  <style>
      @media print {
          @page {
              size: A4;
         }
  }
  </style>
  <input>

Hi frankMoz, yes, this started in Firefox 114: if a site (or the built-in PDF viewer) sets the paper size, Firefox locks the orientation to match. From Firefox 114-118 there was a preference to instruct Firefox to ignore page-size rules, but that preference was removed in Firefox 119. Right now, the only workaround I'm aware of is change the paper size rule to specify the page size in the orientation you want. Please refer to my reply in this thread:

Hi jscher2000, thank you. In my case the problem occurs in a SPA's included third party library. I avoid it by using

   <style>
         @media print {
             @page {
                 size: unset;
            }
     }
     </style>
 

in a globally included style sheet.
