Hello, sometime when i print a web page, firefox print only one page as the whole web page need far more paper. For example with this one https://www.scia.net/fr/support/faq/acier/coefficients-flambement

I ask another question, where can i choose the default printer ?

Hope for answers, best regards

Only in IE do I get 7 pages. see screenshot Someone with more web design is going to have to chime in on this one. Looks like the website is made for IE.  ;-))

The body has a combination of rules that limits output to one page, at least in Firefox:

{
  overflow-x: hidden;
  height: 100%;
}

My extension* overrides those when you click the first button (Allow Page Breaks *LIGHT*) but really the site should stop doing that. I think it's a completely unnecessary pair of rules for the body tag (as opposed to a small scrollable region).

Firefox usually re-uses the last printer you selected instead of always starting from the default. Firefox stores that in a preference named print_printer which you could in theory manually assign, but... Firefox will potentially overwrite it on the next print.

Hi etina66, Firefox for Android doesn't have a print or Save-As-PDF option yet. You can share the current page URL through the share button to a program that can print, such as Samsung Print Service. Or you can use Edge if you prefer.

But this thread is about Firefox for desktop (Windows, Mac, Linux), so please start a new thread if you want to discuss Android issues. https://support.mozilla.org/questions/new/mobile/form
