Firefox selective printing

Hi, i am not sure if its me or if firefox just does not have it. A button to print out a selected text.
I remember with IE it was very easy to just select a text from a webpage and really only print that piece.
With firefox i always have to print the whole page.
I did find a selection under Options. But is this a design thing or is there even an app that makes it just easier to print selective?

Thanks for help

Not sure if it fits your needs exactly, but I use the Aardvark add-on,
which allows you to selectively “remove” elements from the page
(refresh will pull them all back :slight_smile: ).

I do not know if this fits your need, but you ca print part of the screen using Ksnapshot (when you are a KDE user, when not there mut be something like that in Gnome).

Actually that helps a little bit. Not bad.
Still would like to have the button. Not sure why that isn’t included.
But that tip works :slight_smile:

Thanks for everyones input.

If you’re not afraid of using shortcuts, Control+P brings up the printer dialog where one of the check boxes on the options page allows selection printing.
