The page is terribly designed - good target to test the tool...

The page contains zillion of images, takes forever to download. So, before I 
tried to print it, I saved it as "Web page, complete" - really great feature!

When I tried to print the saved page from my hard drive, "shrink to fit" feature
gives 100% zoom, "Print preview" shows the page that is still too wide (some 
clipping on the right side). Clipping was "fixed" when I manually set 80% zoom.
When I tried to print this page from Netscape 6.2, I had same result except 
N6.2 does not let me set zoom.

Another problem: images caught between pages are cut: top part of the image 
remains at the bottom of the previous page, bottom part of the image goes to 
the next page.

I have a screen shot that demonstrates both problems.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open www.costumejewelrywholesale.com, wait until it downloads(with my 56K 
   modem it took about 30 or 40 min.) - the page contains about 8 MB of images)
2. Save the page as "Web page, complete".
3. Close the page and open it from the hard drive, wait until it opens (with my
   Pentium 2 it took a couple of minutes).
4. Click "File" - Page setup", make sure that "shrink to fit" box is checked.
5. Click "File" - "Print preview" (my Pentium 2 took a few minutes to do the
   preview), scroll down.

Actual Results:  
1. Images on the right do not fit.
2. Images caught between pages are split between to pages.

Expected Results:  
1. Automatically zoom the page down to fit the paper width.
2. If an image at the bottom of a page is too high, it should be started from 
   the next page rather than split between pages.

The Shrink to Fit worked fine for me; none of the images were cut off at the
right margin. (note that I didn't save the webpage to disk).  Does this problem
still occur with a more recent version of Mozilla?  I did observe some images
being split between two pages though; that probably has to do with tables.
By the way, you can attach your screenshot (if it is still current) by clicking
on Create New Attachment.
