Print Preview on Toolbar?

Is it possible to put the PrintPreview on the toolbar? When I go to 
customize I see all the usual suspects but not PP. I even see Google 
buttons.

TIA... Bob

For some stupid reason, Firefox developers decided not to included one 
in Firefox.
It is however, available as an add-on extension:
- Print Preview (adds just a pp button; I use this one):
https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=314&application=firefox

- Print+Print Preview (Mozilla-style drop-down button):
https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=1778&application=firefox

- Print It! (adds ppv button, and ppv & print-image context menu items):
https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=282&application=firefox
... but version there is not compatible with Firefox 1.5, so get it 
(English language, but on Italian site) here:

I went with Print+Print Preview 0.1,
very nice.

I like this extension stuff. It's really a better way to go than loading up 
the basic app with 1000 features that only one person uses. (My son refers 
to asking for an omelette and the cook does a souffle and doubles the 
price.)

Thanks... Bob

Extensions are wonderful. Only I am of the opinion that certain 'basic' 
features that are presently only available via Extensions should be made 
standard. Print Preview is one of them. Nothing wrong with having 
extensions available to change the default button (if there was one), 
but when ~10,000+ people have downloaded that same P+PPV extension from 
a.m.o. THIS WEEK, that kind of tells you something, doesn't it? :-)

Why would I want the Print Preview extension standard, when I never use 
it? What's 'basic' to some (even many) is 'bloat' to others. The beauty 
of the extension system is that you can add what features you wish, and 
are not saddled with a lot of (to you) unwanted features. Sure, if Print 
Preview is valuable to you, go right ahead and add it, but it isnt to me.

There are a few extensions that will add this feature.  I use Print/Print 
Preview 0.2 and it works great.  It adds a drop down arrow to your existing 
Print button on the toolbar, to give you a choice to either print or 
preview.  It also adds the same features to the right click context menu. 
You can find it here:

Firefox 2 print and print preview only shows first page
I am wondering if anyone has a fix for this problem: Firefox 2.0.0.1, go to Yahoo mail or Gmail and open an email that is more than one page long. It can contain just text or text and images, same problem. Select Print Preview. Print Preview only shows first page (sometimes first page extends slightly into page 2). Have seen this documented as a problem, but no solutions worked for me yet. Print Preview works fine on web pages that are more than one page long.

Firefox & SeaMonkey greys out the selected frameset when printing from its print preview...
Hello.

I can select on a frame set, click on Print option, and print just fine. When I go to Print Preview, see the correct number of pages, and hit Print button, then I noticed "The selected frame" option is greyed out. I do NOT want all frames (get extra annoying wasted pages that I don't want) or the screen layou...
