Hello. I know that simplified printing is not always available but I don't understand why it wouldn't be consistently available or unavailable when the pages of a site are ostensibly the same? e.g., my Data Science prof has a site she created with "chapters" and quizzes/exercises. I sometimes can print the quiz that I took and sometimes I cannot (in simplified view). They seem to be the same format. I've had this occur with other sites too, e.g., a site that offers recipes. The recipes seem to be presented the same way and show up the same when you go to print them.
What might be different among these pages that would prevent simplified printing from consistently being presented as an option? It becomes super frustrating to find a workaround to print something I need without it being 18 pages long--when in simplified view, it's only 2!

Simplified printing is using reader mode and reader mode is only available when the webpage meets specific conditions like the length of a paragraph.
Hi Lisa, recipe sites often have a link or button to display the recipe in a printable format. That would give the best results. Firefox's own "Simplified" option would be second best. Otherwise, you might need to try printing a selection. Select the part of the page you want to print, right-click, then click Print Selection.
