The one-page only snafu is a well-known and long-standing Firefox
printing bug impacting any number of web sites that affects neither
Chromium nor its derivatives.

As Chrome would appear to be the most popular extant browser (when
counting across all platforms, as well as uniquely on the desktop) your
stackexchange conspiracy theory looks to be leaking some significant
credibility through a rather large hole.

I suppose you could argue that the percentage of Firefox users too lazy
or bewildered to try another browser is good enough for stackexchange,
because, goddammit, you take what you can get. 

To that argument I have my own acronymic rejoinder, derived from the old
Cockney dictum: YPYMAYTYC.
