Easily customize or force printing to print just first page of a long webpage; print controls appear to be ignored

My relative does some “searches” and when she finds something she likes, she wants to print a page for reference.
BUT, when she prints a webpage from some websites, the Firefox printer controls are ignored. Meaning, she sets the printer controls to print just the first page, “Print >> Pages from 1 to 1”.
The ensuing pint seems to ignore the controls and the printer may spew 1 to x number of pages.
Yes, the source webpage can be scrolled quite far down, so it will never fit on one print page. Nonetheless, the controls shown above appear to be ignored with the resulting large volume print (e.g.: the entire webpage is sent to the printer” in lieu of just one page.
My relative does not have the finesses to select an area, so an add-on that requires an extra step or two may not be useful.
Sending to a PDF is also problematic as that requires an extra few steps to open, select and print just the first page.
Any thoughts, suggestions?
BTW, the laptop is up-to-date in all regards: OS, applications, drivers, etc.. Its not a cache issue. Its happened over a period of last two years, but I just decided to see/ask if there is a suggested strategy or solution.

I am running with ubuntu 18.04 I have adobe flash installed on my system but not in firefox I have downloaded adobe flash (flash_player_npapi_linux.x86_64.tar.gz) got the .so file and the usr folder and followed the directions in the readme.txt no cigar
The firefox I am using is the snap version. I have installed flash on another machine with no problem but this one is pesky. I think that my plugins directory is at (as per application basics):
There was another profile and I tucked a copy in there too - just to make sure)
There was 1 other plugin - in firefox and I found its file here so I just added the flash .so file there.
I also did the sudo cp -r usr/* /usr after first moving to the directory where the usr folder was
As far as I can tell I have no other flash players in my system

There has just been a Firefox update. Do the people behind it intentionally set out to annoy users? Is it deliberate policy to wind us up, put us in a bad mood?
Because it is REALLY annoying when something changes for no good reason.
For a long time now, after opening a new tab, I would get 2 rows of 3 "top sites". 2 rows of 3. Now, after the update, seems I have to have rows of 2 or 4. Why? Small point, I grant you, but it just highlights pointless change.
I then spent 10 mins trying to reset the page to how it was. You end up going through page after stupid page and NONE help. There is a box on one that specifically mentions changing the number of rows etc, but when you click on the link, when the page opens it isn't even mentioned.
Honestly, I use Firefox by default. ALL browsers suck and Firefox is simply the best of the worst.
