My system is PC Windows 10. Some webpages / articles may contain numerous pages, anywhere from 2 to 200. The information I wish to print is often contained in only 1 or 2 or 3 of those numerous pages. When I click PRINT, and then click PRINT a second time the PRINT dialog box opens. In this dialog box there is a section for PRINT RANGE. One of the options under PRINT RANGE is "Selection". However, Selection is always greyed out and cannot be used or chosen. There appears to be an old string of questions & responses to this same problem, but that string appears to no longer be a solution. Can you advise if there is a new or current fix as to how I can turn on / activate the Selection option in PRINT RANGE? Thank you.

I found the solution (or work around?) myself, with a little help from Google Search. First, highlight the desired portion of the document or webpage to be printed. Second, do NOT click on the Firefox PRINT icon and do NOT select the PRINT option under the Firefox menu. Third, press CTRL+P and a PRINT dialog box will open with the SELECTION option not greyed out. Fourth, click SELECTION and then click OK to print. It works!

Here is a link to give an example of a web page that illustrates my issue:

https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/forms-publications/publications/t4013/t3-trust-guide-2016.html

When opened and PRINT is clicked, it opens indicating there are 183 pages. However, all I need or wish to print is the section titled WHO SHOULD FILE, which is only 2 or 3 pages long.

Selection is enabled when you have selected anything on a page before printing.

I understand SELECTION is supposed to be enabled when you have selected anything on a page before printing. However, my issue / problem is that SELECTION is not being enabled when I have made my choice as to what portion I want to print. That is, the SELECTION option remains greyed out at all times, even after identifying I wish to only print several paragraphs of a long web page.

I can't reproduce the issue.
