Automatic scaling of pictures to fit in the browser window is a Good Thing. I
like it. But, they stay scaled when you print, and that's kinda Bad.

1. Go view a picture that's bigger than the browser window (see the URL for one)
2. Note that it's shown scaled in the browser window
3. Print it

Note that it prints at the reduced scale, even though the page is big enough to
hold it.

4. Click the image to view it full-sized
5. Print it

Now it prints full-sized, taking up the empty page area.

When printing, pictures should print full-sized. Even better, they should do
auto-scaling based on the page size. That would be cool.

Oh! Firefox (0.8 release) has the same problem. At least on my Mac. Lemme try on
some other platforms. Dunno about Mozilla.
over to mozilla.

Confirmed on Firefox 0.8 release on Win32.

Still don't know about Mozilla, but that probably doesn't matter as Firefox Is
The Future...

This bug does not exist in Firefox 1.5.0.3, but does exist in the June 7 nightly builds of Seamonkey 1.0.2 and 1.1a, as well as the May 19 (most current) nightly of Seamonkey 1.5a.  This is using the linux builds on CentOS 4.
