29 Firefox won't print on my laserjet1020 and printers hp photosmart c4780

In previous versions of Firefox, print with my HP Photosmart c4780 and Laser Jet 1020 worked well. Now, all that happens is the flow of the page. The pages are blank.


Hi k9ahl,

Can you explain if this happens with all pages or only PDF files open with Firefox 29,0? If it's from PDF files, I have been informed that this a bug that will be fixed by an update published Friday morning time Pacific.

I hope this helps.

Best regards.

  • Print yesterday, scanned today and now D110a Photosmart will not print

    Yesterday, we printed documents using our printer Photosmart D110a.  A OK.  Today, we scanned documents using the same printer.  A OK.  Now we try to print again and just empty pages are coming soon.  No idea what Miss them us?  We have a PowerBook G4 (OS X 10.5.8) and Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook (OS X 10.6.8).)  We print wireless.  We tried to print different documents using two computers.  Nothing but blank pages.  I cleaned the print heads and test print came out very well, so there is a lot of ink.  I can scan an image and then print that.  We cannot just simply print documents.  Any ideas, please?  Thank you

    Thanks for your reply. In fact I ended up calling technical support. It's a defective black cartridge. Once I replaced it worked fine. Thanks again.

  • I just installed the latest update to win7, thunderbird and firefox do not, print

    I opened my computer today and he wanted to install updates. You see not the warning messages I allowed it. Since then the thunderbird and firefox won't print or preview before printing. I tried to reinstall thunderbird as, after checking the windows update said it will remove the various drivers etc of 34 and 33. the printer will print ok test page, of various words programs etc.

    Try this:

    Tools > Options > advanced > general tab
    Click on "Config Editor".
    At the top of the search page: print_printer
    Scroll down to print.print_printer.
    Right-click on the print.print_printer line and click Reset.

    Make sure you have the right printer set default on your system.
    Restart Thunderbird.


    If that fails, see if you are using an add-on which is the origin of conflicts.
    Help > restart with disabled addons.
    If it works with addons disabled and then one of the addons is the cause of conflict.
    You will need to work through the addons disabled until you find the one causing a problem. Perhaps add it needs updating.

  • No printer not appearing in devices and printers in Windows 7

    This is quite disconcerting, and after a thorough search, I can't find an answer to work.

    Basically, I installed a printer on my machine here Win7Pro.  The printer can be printed from various applications.  However, the printer does NOT appear under devices and printers.  The printer appears under print management.

    The printer is an Epson color Stylus 2200 connected via USB.  The computer is a Dell D620 Laptop.  Win7 has been properly installed - no upgrade.  The printer is visible (for example) of Corel Paint Shop Pro X 2.

    Anyone has any ideas what setting I need to enable the visibility of printer under devices and printers?  Is there something other wrong here?  It's easily fixable?

    UPDATE: I just added a shared printer (connected to a WinXP machine brother 7040) networking for this laptop Win7 and it isn't too visible under devices and printers.  However, what is different here is that this printer is also not visible under the management of printing.

    Network connections are not in print management.  They should appear in printers and devices IS very disconcerting.  Normally, this will occur if the print spooler service is not running, but then your local machine would be displayed with a red indicator in printing management.

    I guess that you have a standard USB and not a parallel converter cable USB cable.

    Check the security settings for the properties of the printer.  Make sure that your user account is listed at least print access.  Devices and printers opens with the standard user security token.

  • Firefox allows the printing of files PROTECTED on my server. WHY?

    All other browsers RESPECT the fact that a PDF is password protected and does NOT allow this file to be printed. Fire Fox violates this rule, and let's users simply of pass protection and print the files. It really SUCKS! He should fix it to conform to current practices. Is this corrected?

    John, your response to:
    "Basically if the image is published it is likely to be copied in one way or another." Perhaps consider tattoo and or only provide copies low-resolution images in these pdf's.

    I will finish this issue. Anyone who wants to give you detailed perhaps advice do in your original thread

    Firefox allows the printing of files PROTECTED on my server. WHY? / issues/992183
    change Link to previous post ~ J99
    I could certainly copy an image from a pdf file posted or downloaded by browsers other than Firefox. »

    WON'T. I speak NOT of the IMAGE being copied from a screen. This, of course, can be done by anyone. What I'm talking about you, is that FIREFOX, unlike all other browsers, ALLOWS you to print a PROTECTED PDF FILE complete. This should NOT be and this issue should NOT be closed and just brushed side because Mozilla has a MAJOR BUG in their software. Your program should be corrected in order to RESPECT the protection of a file and NOT allow it to be printed in its ENTIRETY.

  • I can't ' print using firefox. Preview print does not appear, is not the print dialog box, printing doesn't appear, etc.

    Looks like that since I've updated for firefox 5, I cannot print web pages, won't work not preview before printing. I click on the print under file option and nothing displays or prints.

    Try Firefox SafeMode and see if you can print from Firefox.

    A way of solving problems, which disables most of the modules.

    (If you use it, switch to the default theme).

    1. You can open the Firefox 4, 5, 6, 7 SafeMode pressing the SHIFT key when you use the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    2. Or use the Help menu option, click restart with the disabled... modules while Firefox is running.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before using the shortcut of Firefox (without the Shift key) to open it again.

    If it's good in Firefox SafeMode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to understand that one.


  • Firefox won't save, preferences, passwords, bookmarks, or bookmarks & imported settings of Safari.

    Firefox won't save bookmarks, passwords or preferences. He also won't save Favorites and imported settings of Safari. I tried the suggestions of help, but nothing seems to work. All the settings seem to be correct. I reloaded the software several times. When I allow Firefox import settings of Safari, it takes more than 40 minutes and then loses everything when I restart Firefox. I tried to start Firefox in safe mode, but it does not help.

    The problems are gone now. However, I'll never know exactly what that caused them. When I restarted the computer in safe mode problems continue. But when I tried to restart my computer does not recognize the hard drive in safe mode or in normal mode.

    It is possible that the Firefox problems were caused by a faulty hard drive.

    I was able to rebuild the directory with Disk Warrior and transfer my files, but the disk would not boot. Fortunately, I had a spare hard drive. I installed and reloaded all my software and data from scratch. I also downloaded the latest version of Firefox. Firefox works fine now.

    Thanks for all your suggestions. They may not have fixed this particular problem, but I learned a few new tricks from you to solve other problems.
