Although some of the numbered bugs are listed as fixed, they do seem to be on my machine: FF3.6.8 and Xmarks being the only add-on

Does not print multiple pages

DIVs, I-Frames, and Tables that extend beyond the end of a page can cause this problem. [8] Related bug reports include:

   * Bug 113217 – iframe printing broken when iframe height more than page height
   * Bug 154892 – Splitting Absolutely positioned frames not implemented - Missing second page of content when printing or print previewing this site (fixed in Firefox 3)
   * Bug 192129 – Only one (1) page in print preview

Still not fixed: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113217 Reported 2001-12-03 - from before the (Phoenix)/ Firefox project even existed.

This Bug was fixed for the specific "testcase" involved. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154892 Here's a new Bug that lists all the similar Bugs, which are shown under Depends on: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=521204 - which covers Bug 192129 as being a dupe of 129941

IMO, printing from Firefox will never be "right" and those Bugs will never be fixed. Mozilla needs to start from scratch and write new code.

I had this same problem. It was very easy to fix. I just downgraded to an earlier version and had no problems.

In my case, it's FF 6.0.2, and the following web page:

http://www.polksheriff.org/insidepcso/oba/businessservices/rms/pages/alarmcontrol.aspx

Only the first page prints, and the bottom half of the last line is missing as well, on an HP LJ5P printer.

In fact, the pages shown in Print Preview are also incorrect. Scale doesn't seem to matter -- the 2nd page is always missing.

I would like a reply that shows the fix in language that does not require any computer savvy at all. I really need to print web pages easily and without hassle.

Type about:config in the Location Bar and press Enter. A list of preferences will appear. Oh no it doesn't! Says not recognised.
