If I scroll, in print preview, through a multi-page document, the page number
displayed at the top of the window should update to indicate the 'page in view'.
Unfortunately it seems to be stuck at '1', and never changes ......

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a long document and select 'print preview'
2. scroll down to some page number > 2
3. Note that the  page number indicator at the top of the window remains '1'.



Expected Results:  
Mozilla should learn to count.

I will add and RFE suggesting that we add a 'print this page' option from the
preview page, or a 'print selected 'pages'  option as with many word processors.
  I'd like that very much!

Still there in 20040923 Firefox/0.10, Win XP. Updating the page number in this
way is generally how it's done in word processors. IE guards against it, for
whatever reason, by only allowing you to scroll to the bottom of the current
page and requiring you to use the next and previous buttons to get past it.

don't see how bug 137084 is dependent, but leaving it untouched.

I still see this problem both on Deer Park Alpha 2:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b3) Gecko/20050712
Firefox/1.0+
I also still see the problem in today's build:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050726
Firefox/1.0+
So I am reopening... 
To redescribe: the bug is that, when you scroll down a multi-page document in
print preview mode, the current page number at the top of the preview frame
(originally set to '1') does not update to reflect the 'in view' page.

If you switch from portrait to landscape, the page COUNT does not get updated either.
