Steps to reproduce:

on 3 page output page 3 is printed on top of page 2.    1.  This does not occur with MS explorer using same Web site.    2. Tried 2 different (Brother) printers with both MS explorer and Firefox.     3.  Tried to print only 2 pages but page 2 is still buggered.   Problem stays with Firefox.   4.  Called friend familiar with firefox and he said it is a problem with firefox printing and he says to use screen print.

Actual results:

3 pages to be printed.  First page OK  2nd page printed and output from 3 page overlayed on 2nd page.  3 page blank except for firefox heading and firefox page #

Expected results:

Documentation should have been printed individually on each page.   3rd page in this example was an agreement attachment to the output.    It appears a line or page feed control code is lost in Firefox toward the end of printing.
Hi JJ,

I have tested this issue on the latest release(43.0.1) and the latest Nightly (46.0a1) and have managed to print a 6 page document without encountering your problem.

Could you please try to reproduce this on the latest release(43.0.1) and latest Nightly( and provide the results. When doing this, please use a new clean Firefox profile, maybe even in safe mode, as some of these issues may be caused by third party installed add-ons or custom settings (

Also please test this on a different browser in order to confirm it is not a printer issue.

Since the reporter didn't provide the requested information and the fact that I have managed to print a 6 page document without encountering the issue, I will mark this issue as RESOLVED WORKSFORME. If you still encounter this problem, please feel free to reopen this bug, or file a new one.
