Firefox does not create a pdf properly using "print > Save as pdf" in Mac OSX. Why?


When I "Print > Save As Pdf" in Mac OSX, Firefox will always clip the right margin of the page, leaving out alot of information from the document. Safari creates the same page effortlessly, but I generally prefer Firefox.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== ? After updating to Firefox 3.5.8 - maybe?
