Printing problems. Missing 2nd page or wrong scale.

When I try to print a web page ie an article from the NY Times or other newspaper, the first page prints properly with correct scale then the 2nd page is either blank or comes out in double or triple scale so that much of the page is missing. I have tried with both "Ignore Scaling" checked and unchecked. As an end-run, I chose a very small font and when the entire article is printed on one page, it comes out correctly. Just the 2nd and 3rd pages are affected. I have already downloaded another copy of Firefox 6.0.1 and have replaced printer drivers. I am using Mac OS 10.6.8 on a MacBook Pro.

I have the same problem; I noticed it only does it when I adjust the scale to less than 100% in the page setup dialog box.

What did you do to fix it, JCEJackson?

Running Mac OS X 10.5.8 using Firefox 6.0.2 print to PDF first page scales correctly with header, all subsequent pages scale incorrectly and are cut off at top of page. Checking or unchecking "Ignore Scaling and Fit to Print" has no effect. Switched back to Firefox 5.0.1 and all pages scale correctly.

What do you mean by "solved"? This does not help very much...

I'm on Firefox 9.0 for Mac and have no desire to go all the way back to FF 5. Any other thoughts on how to solve this? A fix from Mozilla perhaps??? If this has been happening since version 6 it's about time we got a fix. It's ultra-annoying, as I scale my printouts all the time.

I just noticed this same problem also occurs in Thunderbird 8.0.

Where and how do I access the "page setup dialog box?"

9.0 on FireFox Desktop prints and previews all web pages at wrong scale. Page Set Up changes do not affect it. All other Applications on this desktop print fine so it is not the printer. It started happening when 9.0 was pushed on to my machine.

Fell back to FF 4.2 and web printing works fine. SO, 9.0.1 - guilty of messing up web print and previews
