Printing does not work: I always get one or more "Printer Error: An error occurred while printing" popup alert

This is on OSX 10.12.6. I am an 'admin' user on the Mac.
This problem happens only on my own OSX login account: printing works fine from other login accounts (who are also admin-level users) on the same computer.
If I try to print a regular page I get the following results: 1) I see the "print" dialog (select the printer, single-sided or duplex, etc.). When I press "Print" I see: 2) Print Preview Error: an error occurred while printing. When I press "OK" I see: 3) Print Error: An error occurred while printing.
I tried to fix this in three ways and in the following order: (a) starting in safe mode; (b) stoping and restarting using the Refresh Firefox option; and (c) creating a brand new profile. None of these fixed the problem. I still am unable to print, and I get the result described above.
Does anyone have any other options to consider? I really don't want to lose my history, bookmarks or stored passwords!

I initially thought this was a UX issue, but it appears it may be a straight up bug; I wanted to ask here first before I report and assess if others are observing it. Regardless, its a pretty horrible problem either way making web development with Firefox an incredibly frustrating experience, to say the least.
Essentially, the problem is this: sometimes, seemingly at random, when I click a tab in the Developer Tools "Inspector" pane (Rules, Layout, etc) the entire inspector pane (aside from the DOM) will just vanish. I have repro'd it with the dark theme and with the pane docked to the right, but its been difficult to get it to repro in other conditions (clean profile, light theme, etc) since there is no obvious consistency in whether it occurs or not; sometimes it won't happen at all for a while, and sometimes it happens every other time I click a tab.
When it does happen, I've tried everything I can think of but I can find no way to restore the tabs, even by reloading the page, closing the developer tools, switching between panes, switching between DOM elements, trying every option I can think of, etc. except by closing the entire browser tab and opening another. Its infuriating. to say the least, and significant hit to my productivity in Firefox. Any ideas?
The "upload images" feature of this page appears broken, as it gets endlessly stuck on "Uploading..." (not to mention primitive—you can't just copy and paste them directly into post like any modern site), and there isn't any obvious support for Markdown (maybe there is, but it isn't exposed anywhere), so I'll just do things the archaic way and post links to screenshots of the problem on imgur:
