I have no different opinion (I don't think). I know nothing about
stackexchange. I am indifferent to stackexchange. However, if you want
to print that full thread on stackexchange, like *Gene wanted to print
that full thread*, and your horse is so high you won't open Chromium to
do it and insist on using FF, well, then, you are out of luck, son. 

I do note the Bugzilla-Mozilla folks (if they even exist) seem to
consider this very long-standing printing snafu in FF to be a bug (the
apparently platform-independent creature's still alive and kicking after
15 years and four months!):

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=258397

No mention of stackexchange, though. Two years ago Jim Scott complained
in the bugzilla above that the Canada Revenue Agency website suffers
from the problem (having lower moral standards than some, he gave up on
FF and used Chrome to print his tax return).

And so it goes.
