Print option takes a long time to Open on Firefox

I'm having issues printing from firefox. Every time I go to File > Print. It takes approximately 15 seconds for the Printer window to open.

This only happens with firefox if I try to print from word, excel, and everything else it works fine.

Firefox its working fast, it's just the printer option that it's taking a while

Remove or disable any printers no longer in use or not connected. Everytime you attempt to print, Windows must query all printers to see which ones are available and which are not. If they are installed on computer, but no longer in use (like an old printer you threw away and replaced), it will slow the printing process down considerably.

Most printing issues are driver related. Try using a different driver and see if that resolves your issue.

Also try to disable all the addons and then try to print and check if that makes the printing process faster.

his article would help you in running IE and Firefox without addons
