:Anca, if you think that's a regression, then could you try to find a regression range in using for example mozregression?

I can reproduce this on, on linux/ubuntu. If you select an image with very little else, the print preview shows just a stripe of the image. Selecting more content below the image seems to work fine.

I haven't been able to reproduce on reddit, and I don't have an instagram account... Is there any chance anyone can attach something that repros the issue?

This probably is about how the DOM ends up after the selection and such...
