When I go to firefox - Print - Print preview - Page setup OR Firefox - Print - page setup This dialogue box is black. I can't move or adjust it. Nothing is on that screen.

When I print a webpage (ctrl P, or Firefox, print) nothing is printing.

I tried a suggestion of resetting by following the instructions here. That did not work.

It may be caused by an interfering extension or outdated graphics drivers. See Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems.

I just experienced this problem, and stumbled upon the cause and the fix. When I went to "File" and then "Print Preview" I was getting a "black" screen where the preview should have been. I tried the suggested fixes related to about:config printer settings and add-on's, etc... but it did not help.

Then, I looked at the "Page Set-up" when I was on the "Print Preview" page. The bottom margin (for whatever strange reason... have no clue) was set at a huge number of inches... like 43801.4 or some such. I changed it back to 0.3 inches... fixed it. Can print just fine now.

So... if all else fails: check your margin settings on page set-up.
