Affected versions

  • 85.0a1
  • 84.0b4

Affected platforms

  • Windows 10x64
  • Ubuntu 20.04x64

Steps to reproduce

  1. Launch FF.
  2. Go to about:config, disable print.tab_modal.enabled preff.
  3. Open system modal , go to Preferences.
  4. Go to Paper Tab, notice Scale percentage has max limit of 400%.
  5. Go to about:config, re-activate the print.tab_modal.enabled preff.
  6. Open the new Print modal.
  7. Go to More Settings.
  8. Go to scale, Custom and input 400.

Expected result

  • User is able to select 400% scale value, just as in the system modal.

Actual result

  • Error is displayed stating that user can set up a max percentage of 200%.

Suggested Severity

  • Seeing as how this issue can be bypassed by simply using the old modal, I would S4 this issue.

Regression range

  • This issue is not a regression.

Additional notes

  • In order to assure a good UX accross platforms and menus, the default max levels from both modals should coincide.
  • This issue occurs for macOS as well, but the system modal is different for this platform.
Has Regression Range: --- → no
Has STR: --- → yes

The system dialog on macOS doesn't seem to impose a limit; I can specify 1% or 10000% and it doesn't object.

I do think we should at least allow up to 400% in the new UI, for better consistency (and it's not such a huge value that it's ridiculous to request it).

Severity: -- → S4

This restriction is in the frontend code

Component: Printing: Setup → Printing
Product: Core → Toolkit
Priority: -- → P3
