Firefox only prints the first page of several multi-page URL's.

When I try to print a multi page URL, it only prints the first page and identifies it as Page 1 of 1, instead of Page 1 of x. But, IE-8 prints ALL x pages of the same URL perfectly. I've noticed this exact same FF problem with certain other URL's.

This problem is on the current version 14, and dates back to version 9 or before! Any suggestions?

I just checked, and the new Version 3.6.10 STILL has this printing problem!

Here is a sample of a major company's (Ancestry.com) web-site that has this printing problem: http://www.familytreemaker.com/Views/Overview/Overview.aspx

Again, Microsoft's IE-8 prints this web-site correctly (all 3 pages), so FF should too.

They gotta fix this. It's been a huge problem for me for more than a year. Ill defect to Chrome soon if they dont address this bug soon. Printing has been atrocious, even pathetic, i hate to say it. I can only print one page, maybe two if i am lucky. Sometimes, if it prints more than one page, the first page is mostly blank and the formatting of the text and sidebars is completely overlapped and sometimes unreadable. Basically, printing in Firefox is useless - it's a joke. I have to take the URL from Firefox and paste it into Chrome to get a decent print job. Why isnt this bug a higher priority?

Just change "overflow:hidden" on all the conatiners to "overflow:visible". This worked like magic for me.
