Same thing here. I usually have to end up copying and pasting everything into Word and printing from there, which can be irritating when there's a lot to print.

I have same problem. Tried to print multiple pages of product ratings from Consumer Reports website, but only first page and the useless last page (headers only) printed. I have Firefox 3.6.3

This isn't really a solution, but instead of pasting into a word doc, highlight the text, go to file and print, and where you'd put in which pages you want to print, you'll see a radio button for "selection". It prints fine.

Here's the page I was printing

You only get the first page when you print normally, but if you highlight all the text in that main frame, go to print and do "selection", it prints fine. Very annoying problem, since there's no guarantee that printing by selection will do it correctly.

This may or may not give you what you want, but it solved a similar problem that I was having: 1) Place your cursor in the frame that you want to print. 2) Right-click and select "This Frame" ... "Print frame". 3) Click "Ok" in the print pop-up window

one solution that has worked (once so far, since I just did it while consulting with my son, a software programmer) is to use the page a to page b instead of "all" on page set up. Of course you need to know how many pages you will have (or maybe use a larger number - -have not tried that yet) and use preview to see if all works appropriately.

If the full content of a particular web page doesn't show in Print Preview, trying to print the individual page one at a time probably isn't going to work.

This is happening for a customer with a Mac, OSX, 10.5, whether in Firefox 3.6.11 or Safari. To print an e-mail message from web mail, when we use "Command-P" , the print dialog shows it as a single page document, and only prints the first page. Oddly, if we use the small printer icon near the top of the window to reach the print dialog box, we can print all pages. Using the printer icon seems to open the same print dialog box, but when reached in this way, the dialog box represents and allows you to print multiple pages.

Does anyone have any ideas why this might be?

Re: Firefox only prints first page of a webpage

The printer icon on the web page is probably accessing a "printer ready" version of the email, one that doesn't print the left side web mail navigation menu and the advertisements on the eight side of the page. A "printer ready" style sheet can also compensate for a few Bugs in Firefox that might prevent the printing of multiple pages.
