If your HTML page contains a table which is physicaly longer then the printing
page's size, the last row is outstrerched to the right and last bottom left cell
is partialy "printed" outside of paper

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
2.see the first table on the document. And there find #4 testcase: Toolbar
action. This row is critical for printing and it is corrupt when you print it
3.print the documents 

Actual Results:  
Table which must be devided onto 2 pages when you print it on A4 is badly devided.
Thus you miss some peaces of text if you print it

Expected Results:  
I expect that table will be splited without losting text and will be alike
formated on all pages.

Could this be a dupe of bug 101856?  It also deals with table corruption when 
printing on Linux...

I was trying to find similar issue, but get little lost :-(

Anyway, this is not linux specified issue, but it happens on WinXP/W2K too
(I didn't use another).
Also it is visible in Print Preview  mode (Attaching screenshot)

In printing and print preview, if the left-hand table cell spans multiple rows
and the right-hand doesn't span multiple rows and spans multiple pages, the
right edge of the content of the right-hand cell is clipped.

Any intent on fixing this bug? It's been open for nearly two years and I can confirm it's still happening on Firefox

I believe this webpage to also show the same problem:

Could someone possibly check this.  It is a tax return page for one of my client's.

I will also upload 2 screenshots - one of FF's print preview, and one from IE too.

the FF one shows that it cuts the page off way before it should.
