Want to Print directly from appliaction, not save as PDF first

more options

When I am using a web application; ie office365, bank app, etc. If i hit "command p" to print or go to "file-print"....it makes me save as PDF...then i need to go to finder and locate the pdf and print from there.....it has been doing this for many months.....I am saving all kinds of files unnecessarily and a lot of time is lost with all theses extra steps.....any suggestions?

Note: if i use other web browsers it doesn't do this......or if I open office365 documents on the desktop version, it doesn't do this...they will print correctly.

That would be a O/S issue if your not finding printer that would mean none is present or installed correctly for the Office365 to find. That would mean this is a O/S and Office 365 printer issue not a firefox issue since Firefox only uses the printers the O/S installed for it to use.

I assume you get Firefox's overlay, with the preview on the left and the setup controls on the right? At the top of that panel, under Destination, you should be able to change from "Save to PDF" to an actual physical printer. Is your printer listed there?
