Yahoo email: does Firefox have Print Preview shortcut key

I have a problem specific to printing a Yahoo email. I click on "MORE", then Print. Then it opens a new window. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a Print Preview available so I can see how it will print. What often happens is I get a blank last page or one with just a line of unwanted words. So I waste a sheet of paper.

With a Preview, I can see that and, instead, print a selection.

I'm wondering if there is a shortcut key to enable Print Preview? If not, dear Firefox, I wish you would add this function.

Zachary, sorry to say that it did not work. I press ALT key, but the Menu bar does not display. Nothing does. It refers to printing a web page. But in Yahoo, once I open the email, there's a tab for MORE, which enables one to select Print. Then it opens a new window, but apparently it is not a web page. It must be something within Yahoo itself. If so, then maybe Firefox cannot interact with it. darn.

Maybe I misunderstood, are you trying to print with Yahoo or Firefox. Firefox Print should show a preview of what you're getting. The only side affect of this is that you may get unwanted headers/side panels. Which can be accessed via the "Three" bar menu (top right) > print.

I know I'm in Firefox when reading my Yahoo email. Once I open an email and click on Yahoo's MORE and select Print, it opens a new window. That window does show the Firefox icon, so think I'm still in Firefox?

Pressing ALT key should work. but nothing happens.

What I'm referring to you, is to use the Firefox browser's Print. You said you are going to "Yahoo's MORE and select print". Try using Firefox Print. Which again, can be seen in my last reply. Or refer to the first few steps below, as linked. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-printing-problems-firefox

If I open the email and use Firefox's Print, the preview shows all kinds of things I don't want printed. My Navigation pane, Bookmarks, etc. That's why Yahoo has the MORE -->Print. That shows just the email.

Unless you use Yahoo, you are unfamiliar with what I'm writing about. But I thank you for trying.

Hoping to hear from Yahoo email user in the community.

Try editing the title of this thread from your initial posting using Edit this Question to the right of the initial posting, and insert Yahoo email to attract other Yahoo users here.

Or try the Yahoo help pages to find other Firefox users in the Yahoo community.

cor-el, I clicked on your app link. it shows how it adds a universal print link to other things in ff browser, such as bookmark this page. It will not work. Because once Yahoo opens the Print window, all you see is the email and a print link. no other icons on top, just the ff. thus, the app's thing would't even appear.

thanks for trying. pizazz

The Toolbar button that extension adds to Firefox may need to be moved to a Toolbar - I don't know, I prefer the Print / Print Preview extension, myself. or Right-click and use Print Preview from the contextual menu items that extension adds to Firefox. I don't use what I consider unnecessary Toolbar buttons, when there is a contextual menu added to Firefox.

As far as printing a selection', if you go thru Print Preview any selection that you make will be "wiped". There was a Bug report filed about that a long time ago, which I voted for, but hasn't been acted on.

Going on 15 years now (Aug 2002 with Phoenix 0.3) that I have been using Firefox, and all my original gripes about "printing thru" still exist; and other gripes have been added to my original list as a result of "fixes" in intervening years. I get scared every time Mozilla "fixes" something with printing in Firefox due to new Bugs that they create. It seems that every "fix" creates 2 more gripes or Bugs, and rarely fixes a real Bug. Fix it right or just rewrite the printing code so that the current developers have code that they understand how it works. IMO, it is the oldest code in Firefox dating to the original Netscape in 1994-5 - but I am just a long term user; retired now from fixing cars as a career. And my electronics / computer education is from the vacuum tube days, about the time that solid state electronics was just starting to enter the US Naval fleet and long before personal computers became the "Apple of the eyes" of consumers. I am a living fossil, so who listens to what I think ...

ed-meister, no app, extension or anything can be made to display once the email --> more-->print thing is open. even if did, I never take any apps or extensions any way.

i don't think there's a solution, unless firefox decides to work on it. so I'll just end the discussion.

thank you for your suggestion. pizazz
