Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021207 Phoenix/0.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021207 Phoenix/0.5

Plz add a "print frame /iframe" option to the rightclick context menu under This
Frame. Also needed: a way to select the frame iframe for printing. IE does this
by cursor location, or location of javasript code execution (ie: from a link on
the iframe page).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. visit url 
2. select text in frame of iframe
3. print
Actual Results:  
Print doesnt print whole frame/frame
Print doesnt exclusively print frame/iframe

Expected Results:  
Print whole frame/frame
Print exclusively frame/iframe

I'd like to vote for this one, along with a related request (tell me if you want
a separate request): With graphics, I would like to see a Print Graphic item on
the right-click context menu. I use this a lot when preparing for a trip. I go
to Mapquest using IE, and directly print the maps I need. With Px, one must save
the map to disk, then leave the browser and print the map. Having Print Graphic
(like IE's Print Picture) in the right-click menu would make life so much easier.

This is a dup of bug 137014, except that this bug is for Phoenix and 137014 is
for Mozilla.
Summary: A "print frame" option is needed [in rightclick context menu under This Frame] → "print frame" in context menu (under "this frame")

Bug 204519 proposes the same thing as this bug, with the following exceptions:

Differences
1. The context menu option would be simply "Print"

Similarities
1. The context menu option would be frame sensitive like in IE.

I forgot all about this one. Is there another, easier way of printing a specific
frame?

" You tried to request blocking-firefox3. Only a sufficiently empowered user can make this change."

Could someone please mark this one? Thank you.

nit: I kinda prefer |var contentWindow = aWindow || window.content;|, but I don't care that much so up to you (same comment applies elsewhere in the file).
