I have been searching for a regression and have reached Fx54 with the same repro steps . This issue does not seem like a regression

Has Regression Range: --- → no

Only the selected screenshot area should be displayed inside the print preview.

Not sure that'd be my expectation fwiw. It sure is a bit weird to print the modal, but that's the state of the page right now. If we want to fix this this probably needs integration from the screenshots code somehow... But honestly I don't think this is an S2.
