Strictly speaking, the problem does not arise due a problem in the
printing system. Firefox produces a PDF before dispatching it for
printing and that PDF is not a true representation of the web page.

Whether the issue is tackled by Firefox or at the stackexchange end
is immaterial; this will take time. Meanwhile, there is an elderly
user who had hoped to read and absorb the material today while eating
his free lunch.

Maybe he would like to use SHIFT+F2 with Firefox (I have Quantum) and
take a screenshot of the whole page.

  screenshot filename.png --fullpage

Use TAB to complete and move along the command line. The file produced
is named filename-fullpage.png and is, of course, printable.
