Details

Firefox (and other browsers) should support page-based counters from CSS Paged Media Module Level 3 ( https://www.w3.org/TR/css3-page/#page-based-counters ) as this is the only way web pages can provide nice page numbers in printed form and be in control of how pages are numbered.

No browser supports it currently, although various print-focused tools do (https://www.print-css.rocks/tools.html lists some).

Good articles on the subject:

Here is the corresponding ticket for Chrome: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=740496
This ticket replaces bug 1117798 which was closed because of inactivity while the subject of page-based counters is still very current.
See Also: → 1117798
The closures due to inactivity were reverted, so I'm going to dupe back to that bug.
