Why does Firefox only print the first page or two then stop?

Skrevet

Sick and tired of asking! Community Volunteers are mostly a dumb bunch! Now that I have attention, why-oh-why does Firefox usually (but not always) whenIi want to print 3 or more pages, whether I try to Print or I go into Print Preview, Firefox only gives me the first page (and sometimes that is empty, except for the header) and then it give me the next (or first) page, then I get the 3 of 3 pages - even if there is more! Have to go to Chrome or another browser to print the whole 4, 5, 6, (or however) many pages. I do not think it is a 'settings' issue on my desktop...or any of my laptops. What is wrong with Firefox? This page, for example, https://www.metopera.org/season/in-cinemas/2019-20-season/agrippina-live-in-hd?utm_source=HD%20Porgy%20and%20Bess&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=1-20LiveinHDPorgyandBess&utm_content=version_A is about 6 pages long (if I view in MS EDGE or Windows Explorer (which MS says should no longer be used!) - it's 6 pages, but if I go to Print in Firefox (using Win 8.1 on a recently overhauled desktop (or on a brand new Win10 HP laptop) I get the first page and page 2 of 2 is a header oly. Same in Print Preview. FIREFOX DON'T WORK!!!

The broken print preview that you see is actually the way that the webpage is rendered. You just cannot usually see it. The use of the {display: flex;} CSS property makes the content of the page scroll within a small view box.

There is webkit specific CSS which fixes printing on Chrome and the new Chromium based Edge browser. This page will not print correctly on legacy edge or other non-webkit browsers.

Firefox fixes this problem if you check the "simplify page" checkbox in the print preview screen. However, it will make other print optimizing changes as well.

Less practically, you can change the .site-wrapper CSS selector to have {display: block;} on this page before printing in the developer tools. This causes this particular page to print properly.
