I've already found the solution, but wanted to share that Version 90 created a problem with Print Preview and Shrink to Fit. Uninstalling Version 90 and re-installing Version 89 fixed the problem. With Version 90 the Print Preview function (which I love) didn't work properly. When I try to Shrink to Fit any page, the first page shrinks, but the second page isn't pulled into the first page. Also, there's missing information on both pages. If there's another solution so I can use Version 90, please tell me. If not, and Mozilla is doing away with Print Preview (and Shrink to Fit), I'll have to do away with Mozilla Firefox. Sorry, but that's the main reason I use Firefox over Chrome. Perhaps I can find another browser to do what I want. I hope not though.

There is something wrong with shrinking the page below 94% on Firefox 90 -- whether Firefox does it with Shrink to Fit or you set the scaling manually. I think you are describing that problem. Here's a thread from earlier today.

I'm going to see whether I can track down the source of the problem...

Reset firefox profile to workaround the problem, but the problem persist. After update to 90.0 (and 90.0.1) beginning the problem where preview does not fit and skrink anormally each preview the same page after refresh.

Render page well, but in preview FAILs and printing wronkg like previews. Html code has table tag width=100%

Chrome and Edge printing well.

Hi gladiston, yes, sorry, there is a bug in Firefox 90 with all scaled printing. Whether you change the scale manually (for example, reduce 100% to 70%) or use Fit to page width/Shrink to fit, in either case, content is truncated. Google results pages generally are too wide and will trigger downscaling.

Depending on the page, you could switch to Landscape mode and see whether it will fit without scaling.

Work is underway to fix this new problem, but we don't have any information on when that might roll out in an update. (Yesterday's update does not have a fix for this.)
