The Print function appears to be flawed. Every attempt to use this function fails and results in a blank page being "printed" and an uninformative error message from the browser: "An error occurred while printing". I've switched to Chrome with no printing problems. I use Win 10 on a PC. ](*,)

I got the print feature working. I tested my brother printer and xps document.

Test page

Firefox 57.0.1
Windows 7 SP1 32-bit

Problems printing web pages
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Problems_printing_web_pages

The source says the "error occurred while printing" error message is the catch-all error message if the developers got one that they don't recognize. In older versions, the developers sent the print()'s return codes to the dump console. That was helpful when reporting bugs.
