When scaling in page setup, 1st page prints correctly, but subsequent pages do not scale correctly/too large for the paper, parts of the text missing

When trying to print in Firefox, and when scaling the page size in page setup, the first page prints correctly, but subsequent pages do not scale correctly and are too large for the paper, with parts of the text are being cut off at the top and right. This is not fixed by checking or un-checking the "ignore scaling/shrink to fit page width" in the print window, or by changing the scaling%.

I am running Firefox 15.0.1, on Mac OS 10.5.8.

The same problem happens in the print preview and if I save the print as a .pdf

I have tried all the fixes in the how to's and others in various forums with no improvement.

This happens every time I try to print a document scaled up or down only in Firefox.

I note the bug has been fixed, and is expected in Firefox 21 so at present that will mean using nightly http://nightly.mozilla.org/

Is this happening on all programs when you try to print, or is it just when you try to print something from Firefox?

I am having a similar problem in Windows 7 Firefox 15.0.1

In no other browsers it does this but in Firefox I go to print a page and the h1 prints on the first page. Then on the second page is the rest of the content. Then it only prints 1 page of content even if the page is like 16 pages long. I removed all CSS from the page. Tried the following CSS fixes I found in my google search and applied them to all the elements on the page. Yet this issue keeps happening.

 overflow: visible !important;
 float: none !important;
 position: relative;
 page-break-inside: auto;

This only happens in Firefox.

This sounds like a bug to me. Can you reproduce this with a clean Firefox profile? If so, it would be great if you could file a bug report in bugzilla.mozilla.org to make sure this gets developer attention.

Thanks!

First I deleted the profile and still the problem persisted. I then did a clean uninstall/install and still had the problem.

Thank you for the bug report suggestion and the link. ;-)

Same problem running MAC OS 10.7.5 and Firefox 17.0. First page is OK all the other pages default to the Font selected under "Content" in "Preferences" and the pages don't scale properly. Prints OK in Safari--Only in Firefox is there a problem I selected Print --then PDF-- and then "Open PDF in Preview" and that's where I also see the problem

No solution in sight it seems

I believe I am experiencing the same problem. I am running 17.0.1 on a mac that is running OS 10.7.5

Please give guidance on how to fix this.

Downloading a page like: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/article/244760

This generates a pdf that is bigger than one page.

I save this pdf to my desk top and if I then open it with either Preview or Adobe Acrobat it comes back shifted - just like the example above.

Please give guidance on how to fix this.
