How to Add a Print Button to the Toolbar in Firefox

Most modern Web browsers have started to reduce the amount of space that the browser elements consume. This puts more of the window’s focus on the page content, and can show more of a page in the window.

But this reduction of space utilization by browser elements comes at a cost, and you may not like the fact that Firefox no longer has a Print button that you can click to print a page.
