I printed out this article-

but the table at the beginning of the article won't print -- the
printing begins with the Heading then skips the table of the various
VPNs and continues from "VPNs Keep You Safe Online".
     Had same problem--- cuz table is too wide.
     Flipped it to landscape and it printed the table
on the first page...

I took another look at this, and the text is corrupted by some kind of
"share" thing for what looks like symbols for facebook, twitter, and a
couple of things I don't recognize. And since I

won't ever use any of these "social" apps, I can't share with any of
them, and it makes the text difficult to read. If you subscribe to PC
Mag, you should write to them and complain!
You can click on "toggle reader view", the text becomes easy to read,
but the table disappears.

Another "feature": print preview crashed the tab. A second time and it
fails to respond at all.


You speak in riddles :-). What "tab" crashes?

Nothing "crashes" here, but then I don't know what you mean by "tab".

The firefox tab where the page was displayed. FF posted a notice
regretting that the tab had crashed (previously the entire FF would crash).

I clicked on File/print preview, and the page crashed. Made FF to crash
the tab.

I typically use "preview" instead of printing directly, so that I can
change the zoom level if the page doesn't fit, and to know which pages
to print instead of all of them.

And thank you for sending me the LibreOffice copy of that article. I had
a quick look at the first page as it came up in LO but haven't looked
further (to see if the graphics on the later pages are there) nor
printed it.

Welcome :-)

Changing the size of the font in reader view is easier, though.

Cheers / Saludos,
