    It's been quite some time...years, even!...since I did a Print Selection from a browser.

    Last night, I tried printing just a couple of paragraphs from a website that I had highlighted and...even though it did print just the selection, it also spit out numerous blank pages.

    I suppose I'll not do that going forward and, rather, copy/paste the selection to Wordpad and do it from there.

    But, has anyone else had this happen?

    Depends on the formatting on the page.. specially with newer html5 i find even the selection printing can be totally unpredictable.

    I usually print to PDF first, then to the printer. This way you'll know if something is amiss with what's been printed.
