With latest version of Firefox, my printing choices diminished

Posted

When I hit print in the file menu, it used to offer me an option of highlighting part of a page and only printing that selection.
It no longer does that after the most recent upgrade of Firefox.
How can I get it back?
The fixes I've been offered on boilerplate pages are useless.

Hi coliandroet

I've edited your post and changed the uppercase you used to lowercase to make it easier for us to read.

In case you have a problem with reading or writing (smaller) lowercase text, you might be interested in the NoSquint extension.

You can use the NoSquint extension to set font size (text/page zoom) and text color on web pages.

In order to print a selection, make sure the text is selected before calling up the print dialog.

If the dialog is not expanded, click the triangle to the far right of the printer name to expand it. The selector should say "Firefox".

The first checkbox under Options should be to print the selection. Is it grayed out? Completely missing?
