2 sided printing

When I print it keeps printing on both sides. I changed it to "no" in the printing setting in Firefox but when I exit it keeps going back to 2 sided. That doesn't seem to be the case in other browsers. I tried to follow the advice given here to type in about:config in the address bar but after giving me the warning it just went to a blank page after I clicked to proceed anyway. Any advice I can get would be much appreciated.

Hi, if you changed the setting using this sequence:

  • Open Print dialog (for example, Ctrl+P)
  • Click the Preferences button
  • (then change settings)

I believe that change is a one-time override to the default settings for that printer (as defined at the Windows level).

I'm not sure there is a way to permanently switch that value in Firefox 84. Maybe in a future version (a new print experience is in development)? For now, you could consider creating a second Windows printer (pointing to the same physical printer) for single-sided printing.

Thank you for your reply. Firefox did print 1 sided but for some reason it just started to print 2 sided. I have no idea why it would change since I hadn't downloaded any updates. Since running into this problem I do not think that I will be downloading any updates ant time soon.
