If image on the printed web page dosen't fit on the page, Mozilla should allow
user to choose what to do. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.take a web page with images and try to print

Actual Results:  
If image on the printed web page dosen't fit on the page, Mozilla either dosen't
print it at all (often it dosen't print even images that fit on the page, but
this is already reported as a bug), or it prints one part, and dosen't finish it
on second page. In the best case (rarely) it prints first part of image on the
first page and second part on second page.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should allow user to tell what to do. If Mozilla realises during the
print-preparing phase that some of images will not fit to the actual pages, a
dialogue should appear asking user what to do. There should be two choices
1, split images between pages
2, move images to next pages so they will be printed correctly. Whole page will
be of course enlarged by the free space left.

The 2 should be default, because I think most people want images to be printed
completely, not cut-off.

More, checkbox should be avaiable, where user choses, if he wants to be asked
next time, or if Mozilla should remember the today's choice and don't ask next time.
The settings should be of course avaiable in Preferences, for the case that user
one day wants Mozilla to act differently.

First the bug with the issues of images splitting across pages would have to be
resolved, before you could even consider offering a pref like this....

OK, I just thought that the splitting images "is not a bug, it's a feature" :o)
But if it is a bug that will be resolved, then of course such option is not
