How to print exactly what's shown

I often want to print exactly what's shown on the current page. But some websites apparently intercept the print command and rearrange or completely reformat the content according to what they "know better" you need. Google Maps does this. Is there a way to avoid this and print exactly how it's currently laid out?

Sincerely, John Boncek

That is likely caused by a special print CSS file (@media print) that is applied when printing a page.
You will have to take a screenshot to print the page as it is shown.

Thank you. I downloaded the Capture & Print add-on, which allows printing exactly what I want.
