PRINTING FORUM PAGES: Firefox Is there a Way ??

I'm wondering if there is a way to PRINT several pages in a THREAD (remove DL650V2 Tank and Air filter) without having all the RIGHT HAND (1/3 page of recent discussions) ads etc in the PRINT JOB.

I want to print about 13 of the thread pages and my current set up RT CLICK, PRINT shows all the STUFF over on the right.
I'd like to be able to print a CLEAN copy of the Fueltank/Air filter instructions in the thread without all that STUFF taking up the right half of the page

Try Right click at the top of the page, then select This Frame -> Print Frame (that works in Waterfox - 64bit Firefox)

as stated above, you could try the print frame option. if you are in chrome as well there is more page printing options within the browser as well.

I use an accounting package called sql-Ledger. Even though Chrome is my usual browser, I need to use sql with FF or Waterfox to print a Balance Sheet or Income Statement as the program doesn't have a print page function.

Chrome screen prints the whole page with the sidebar menus but with FF or WF I can print the frame with just the reports.

two views of a web page in firefox

There is a plugin for Firefox called Reader View. It strips a page down to its bare essentials, and provides a super clean interface.
You can find it at:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...platform=linux


Google it or examples.

In Firefox you can click on the 3 horizontal bars in the upper right corner and just choose "print", no?

Yes, and it PRINTS the whole page as depicted...Ads, Recent discussions and all the assorted other crap..
Some software programs/sites have a 'clean' PRINT VERSION button where all the "other stuff" is removed in favor of just the Information in the thread.
This board doesnt seem to have this feature but the READER VIEW suggestion worked well
