I just upgraded Firefoxes to v86. However, I still don't see its preview
in macOSes and my decade old 64-bit W7 HPE SP1 PC's still looks the same
for its printing and its previewing. Am I missing something?

Thank you for reading and hopefully answering. :)

You shouldn't need to, but have you altered the
"print.tab_modal.enabled" setting in about:config ?

Am I the only Mac user disappointed with Firefox 86's "improved Print
functionality?"

"The new print experience has been getting turned on gradually for
different groups of users through the Normandy system. That's the same
system used to distribute Studies, in case you might have disabled those."

You don't have the "Print using the system dialog..." link in the dialog?

I have "studies" disabled, but the normandy system still managed to
silently push the settings to my FF 85.x for the new print dialog.

Here
Firefox 86.0 on Linux Mint
app.normandy.enabled: false (by me)
app.shield.optoutstudies.enabled: false (by default)
print.tab_modal.enabled: false (by default)

print.tab_modal.enabled: true => new Print dialog

Nope. I never touched it. Shouldn't Mozilla set this to true for this
version for its users to see the new print?

Dunno if the upgrade would set it true, or just behave as though it was
set true anyway.

Wouldn't hurt to try setting it true ...
