Have a look at the following webpage:

https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/music-pla ... s-android/

When you print this webpage (from Firefox) into a *.pdf file then only the first page (of the core article) is printed.
The remaining article text is suddenly cut.

Why?

Exactly which CSS statement is responsible for this cut?

It must be a Firefox-specific instruction since I can successfully print the full article in Chrome.

Hi Peter, it's difficult to tell. I have an add-on that has two levels of pagination assistance. The first (*LIGHT*) tries to detect problem style rules like display:flex and override those. But in this case it doesn't detect the thing that is causing the problem. The second (*DEEP*) is more of a sledgehammer and it does override whatever it is in the page that is causing the problem.

The following element has display: inline-block and my *LIGHT* function doesn't correct that. I should see whether I can safely update that.

Code: Select all
<div class="single-post-content rte">
