Firefox Portable won't print - File stuck in Spooler

I am currently running Firefox Portable 93.0 on Windows 10 Pro x64. For a while now (earlier versions of Firefox Portable) until now I cannot print anything from the browser. All other browsers on my system (Chrome, Edge, Brave) and regular applications print fine. I have combed the internet searching for help but not finding my specific problem. I have repeatedly stopped and started the Spooler service with no luck. Doesn't matter what content I'm trying to print, either. I would very much appreciate some help. Thanks much!

Addendum: This could be relevant, not sure: the print queue (I have tried several including Microsoft Print to PDF) cannot remove the job when I say to delete it until Firefox Portable is closed. Also no error message most of the time. In the rare times I get an error it reads "Print Preview Error - An error occurred while printing".

This is likely a publisher issue. You can try temporarily installing Firefox to your system to see if that will print to narrow it down. The other browsers you mention being able to print doesn't really mean anything as they're all the same browser base (Blink).

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Tried Installing Regular Firefox - Same Result

I did move Firefox Portable from my C: drive and installed the regular version of Firefox. Exactly the same result when I tried to print. All other programs I tested, including other web browsers, continue to print as normal. Thanks for the suggestion, but something else is going on.

Can you try on other computer?

After determining that it's something in both the regular and Portable versions of Firefox, and seems to be happening only to me, I'm going to continue to try to find out what's happening on the Mozilla forums. I'll post back here when (hopefully not If) this can be resolved. Thanks for all the help, everyone!
