Simplify Page is available but isn't printing everything that shows in the Preview screen
I have the Simplify Page option set back up on my Print Preview screen and it appears to be working fine on the screen, but when I try to print the page it cuts a bunch off on the right and on the bottom of the page. It doesn't appear to be a marginal issue. I think it's something with the latest version 90.0.1 of Firefox that I recently downloaded.
Please don't do away with the Simplify Page option! I use it ALL THE TIME!

This is likely related to other print issues that are about resizing the print output on not about Simplify Page. See:

Thanks for this information! I use the Simplify Page option all the time and really wish you would stop taking it away each time you do an upgrade. It sounds like a lot of other people do as well. One big reason why I have stayed with Firefox and not switched to a different browser.
If the new print experience is missing features you can't live without, you can roll it back for at least Firefox 84 and 85 as follows:
(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.
(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste tab_mo and pause while the list is filtered
(3) Double-click the print.tab_modal.enabled preference to switch the value from true (new experience) to false (classic)
For what it's worth, Simplify Page will be added to the new print UI in the next version of Firefox (91). It will have a different name though, being under a "Format" heading with two choices: "Original" and "Simplified". Note the heading is under the "More settings" section which needs to be expanded to see these options.
