I want to print and read articles on http://slashdot.org/, for example
 But on page 2 on the printout, the right margin gets cropped, taking away about
a word from each line. This can be seen on both the printed paper and on the

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://slashdot.org

2. Click on "Read more" under an article intro, taking you to e.g.,

3. Do File ==> Print Preview

4. Scroll down to page 2 of the preview. Watch the right margin. It is cropped
for the bulk text, but not for the page header (where the URL is visible). 

5. Scroll down to other pages. They are not cropped.

Actual Results:  
nothing special

Expected Results:  
Apparently, there is something weird with page 2. The same text should be
visible on the printout and in the print preview as for online browsing.

This bug exist in Mozilla 1.4b, 1.3b and, I think, in 1.2.1.

The page now displays fine for me in print preview.  No cropping.  Does this

in a week, I will close this bug report.

The problem remains in Firefox 0.9, but in not very easy to reproduce. I tried
with a number of today's articles on Slashdot. Cropping occurs with
But when that article was saved to file (Save page as, View page, complete),
there ws no cropping on the saved version of the article. As before, the
cropping of article text is only on page 2. I'm printing to A4 paper.

Still doesn´t work for me. This time in Firefox 1.0.6, Gecko 20050716. 
Perhaps this is important: paper size A4, margins = 12.7 mm on all four sides
(in Page Setup).
