  1. Nope. The classic print preview is gone. No more full screen and careful ability to change by the percent or mess with settings. Special about config solution is now irrelevant. Instead we have this ridiculous tiny panel box to work with and the only relief is going back to the expected print dialog but the actual full screen sized print preview is absent. FIREFOX PROGRAMMER IDIOTS! TAKE A VERY LONG VACATION AND STOP RUINING THE BROWSER FUNCTION. We want classic print preview back. Idiots. None of the add ons related to clever print preview and print tricks work either. Chrome sucks and so does Chromefox.

    For the programmers reading this, good luck. Those nerds spend all day long in the firefox programmer forums like all day long. They’re wasting enough time to discover new medicines, solve the economy, solve all labor issues, solve mankinds greatest dilemmas. Instead they just waste their time caring about if we have a print preview box or open image in new window function. IDIOTS. At this point I wish the program was not free so my boycott of the idiocracy would affect their bottom line.

    STOP CHANGING FIREFOX! There is a regedit hack to absolutely stop updates and update reminders just fyi in case anyone wants a piece of that. Missing print preview is just the worst ever. I kept on ff 75 for the longest time, it was clean, narrow, close easy to use bookmarks, no rounded edges, and just better all around. But they broke that somehow too. Firefox now has a mandatory no opt out feature where they apply changes to your browser, even if you don’t update it. So now you know. Telemetry is on full time and there is no way to turn it off.
