Build ID: 20170921064520

Steps to reproduce:

I'm filling a new print bug, it might be a different issue then my other bug 1303221. This time it is not "printing the first page and then multiple white/blank pages," it is only printing the first page period; i.e. Firefox (and IE) don't seem to know that the document is any longer than 1 page.

Example:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/threat-protection/windows-defender-exploit-guard/windows-defender-exploit-guard


Actual results:

Microsoft (docs.microsoft.com) is worst than ever when it comes to printing. Both Firefox and IE fail to print anything but the first page of documents hosted there. The only thing I have capable of printing docs.microsoft.com is Google Chrome. I even tried the Print Edit AddOn, deleted everything but the content in the center of the webpage, and printing that STILL only results in a single page (of a multi-page document).



Expected results:

Print multiple pages.

Discovered I cannot print Super-User webpages either, Firefox only prints the first page:

Both the Microsoft page (in comment 0) and the super-user page (in comment 1) use a single-line column flex container for <body>.

The Microsoft page might have changed, so it prints OK now. The super-user page is similar to the Stack Exchange reported in bug 1562442. Bug 1622935 can only solve part of the issue, we need to fix bug 1417615.
