I am using Firefox and often want to print out a webpage.

When I go File then print preview or page set up it seems to me to be very hit and miss as to whether I get borders only or some data etc.

Has anyone got any exact info on how to do this without wasting tons of time or paper ?

Regards

You can select the stuff you want to print and then go File > Print and tick 'selection'. That works for me.

Firefox doesn't seem to scale webpages properly to fit the printed page, so I switch to IE which does. There may be an add-on to fix this, but I haven't bothered to look ;).
There is often a 'Print' link somewhere on the page (esp with news items) to help simplify the page format for printing.

Select and copy. Paste to Word. Print the Word doc.

Nope I have used it for years, you can use this extension to drastically alter and compact web pages down to only what you want to save, then either print or convert to an pdf and then print.

I do this about 5 times a day.


Maybe the original site has been hijacked, Google has a warning as well, here is an alternative download from Mozilla:

Don't forget you can highlight just what you want to print on the page and then choose print selected in the Firefox print Dialogue, a fairly useful method for quick saving.

If preview shows it weird that's what I do. Word.

Can do online with Print What You Like (http://www.printwhatyoulike.com/home/index2). Review here. (http://web.appstorm.net/how-to/printing-pages-with-print-what-you-like/)

You should try Aardvark from the 2nd link above, it is one of the best Firefox add-ons.
