Are all pages printed properly? Somtimes the size set on printing makes a difference.

It's only a page recognition problem. Internet Explorer recognizes the 9 page breaks, firefox not. Not relevant? That this old man being burnt by Micro$oft all his life, promoting Firefox, occasionally have to go to IE to solve a Firefox problem, hehe

I don't understand what your issue is? What do you want us to do?

Is this a publicly available form? Could you provide a link to it?

How many pages appear in Print Preview?

File > Print Preview or if you have the Menu Bar hidden use the orange Firefox button > Print > Print Preview

If Firefox only shows 4 pages in Print Preview, that's all you're going get printed.


Here's a link to the instructions for 1099-Misc form, in case that is what he is referring to.
http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1099msc.pdf

Comes up as 10 pages for me using the built-in PDF reader in Firefox. I can view the entire file with no problem, but didn't try to print it as I don't need that information and I don't want to waste paper and toner to test it.

One normally receives 1099 forms by mail.

US Treasury Direct expects account owners to download a copy. It comes in a ----.htm format meaning NOT just text. Included is some page-break codes unknown to me.

I/E recognizes the code and prints out 9 pages containing last years 1099-INT, 1009B and 1099-OID, with instructions, all in perfect order with all info correct. Firefox does not recognize the codes, and simply makes a normal page break when enough info calls for a break to fit a 11" sheet, printing only 4 pages, thus missing much info.

I'm guessing there is a major code that separates the 1099s and a minor code for the multiple pages within each of the 1099s, and thus the reason for 4 pages.

To "the-edmeister" I need to say, that different from him, I do need all 9 pages to back up my 1040 tax return this year. (Last year I had to provide IRS a copy of one of the above, IRS claiming they had not received the info from the Treasury, hehe. Correction: not funny.)

The makers of style rules have established a number of different page break properties. The most common are:

  • page-break-after: always;
  • page-break-before: always;

Firefox supports those basic values, but there are some more unusual ones that might not work.

Also, Firefox may ignore the break if it is attached to an element that doesn't actually take up space in the document.

I'm not sure it's worth the time to investigate further, but if you like, you could view the source of the HTML page (Ctrl+u) and search in the source for page-break.

Then see which part of the page has the break attached. Style rules can be written directly into the code (easier to see the connection) or they can be written in a separate section with a reference to the relevant part of the code. If you would like more info, just ask.

Thanks guys! This terminates my questioning. You both verified my suspicions.

Like so many times before it comes back to the outfits that are in bed with Micro$oft only, the worst of which will not even open their pages to any browsers other than IE. Uncle Sam, here the US Treasury Direct,, is definitely IE oriented even if it permits the fox to access as well as download stuff. Guess this 85 yr old will keep that IE-spare for the rest of my life for cases like this one.

I would like to mark this entry of mine "Solved" but don't know where!.
