Unable to print full page in certain websites
I used to take print to study contents offline and I almost always use Mozilla as a browser. Recently I noticed that I was unable to print a full page in a simple website. Understandable that firefox team has been busy working upon the print bugs, but the page and the website I am referring to is Purely HTML and CSS; and for some reason firefox cuts out the rest of the pages from print except for the first.(i.e) to say it prints only the top part of the page..

Though I work with Ubuntu I have crosschecked with Win8.1 and TOR version of firefox which had the same shortcoming, with the website I was referring to. However other browsers such as the Safari and Chrome seem to do fine with this regard. Kindly check for yourselves and let me know if I am going wrong somewhere. Also please Avoid recommending any add ons to accomplish the task at hand.
The thing is the website I was referring to is of very simple make and may help the team to shoot the bug if any, with an easier test case such as this.
With love and Thanks

Hi Rudran, there certainly are a lot of pages that Firefox does not print correctly. Certain style rules are treated as creating an unbreakable block that isn't split into multiple pages. However, viewing those pages in Firefox 78.0.1, I don't see a problem.
Okay i will then wait until the release of Firefox 78.0.1 and then check the same, before polling a bug at bugzilla.mozilla.org. Correction it was released.
My concern is mozilla holds its ground at competitions from the Proprietary counterparts; so instead of switching over to an alternative browser to accomplish the task at hand, I just polled it here. In my view that attention to details in a web product is something substantial.
Cause when people are flooded with variety of option from multiple for profit (direct - Indirect agenda) competitors; they won't give a second thought to switch over.
Thanks and regards

UPdate: I just ran 78.0.1 Looked promising.
