Quite often I come across sites like this

http://goldscents.blogspot.com/2011/02/energy-no-thanks.html

with some articles in them. I always use the 'print preview" before I print. On this one, what I get is: page 1 of 3: a page with several lines of heading - the rest of the page is blank page 2 of 3: the text starts, and gets chopped at the end of the page page 3 of 3: blank

Even an old piece of junk like IE8 works properly! I have other examples of this behavior - it isn't just the print preview, it actually prints like that too! I can never get the whole text. IE8 shows me 8 pages for this particular article.

Every time I go to Wikia or Wikipedia or even signing in to my AIM mailbox OR even type the code in reCaptcha. I always encounter the strange characters issues instead. I tried to follow all the so called solutions provided but none ever work. I had to rely on Chrome to go to these websites because FF can't. I even hard-reset on my profile.

I'm fine with running 7.1; the risk is very small, and I'm willing to accept it. Or does someone have another solution?
