User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0) Build Identifier: Firefox - Print Problem; (1)No Right Click Print (2)Highlighted Select Print pages The first try to print - right click does ot bring up print menue. The second try, highlight text to print, control P , Alt S Great ! Printer prints --- except the break in the text for the next page occurs in the middle of a line of text - hense the top half of the words are printed on one page and the bottom half of the words are printed on the following page. Using the stock Mozilla print menue prints the whole page with all the extra stuff in the margins and columns..... and only prints 1 page only the first part of the text in the right column (which is several pages in length when printed - highlight, control P, alt S ) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.go to LDS.org 2.click on Gospel Library, Ensign Magazine articles 3.Print an article - selecting only the article text from among the web page columns and boxes :>) Actual Results: 1)Mozilla prints only the first page of the right column - plus all the excess stuff in the left column NEED RIGHT CLICK PRINT. 2)Control P Alt S print break for the next page in the middle of a text line Expected Results: 1)should right click print. 2) highlight, control P , alt S , print - should break for the next page before printing the top half of the last line in order to print whole lines on each page. 1)I prefer to have a right click, print menue option. 2)With the highlight text to print, control P, Alt S method - Obviously the break for the next page needs to print a complete line of text - rather than the top half on one page and the bottom half on the next page. would be great to right click on a photo, or text box on a web page to bring up the Mozilla print menue - then size the photo to fit .... 100% , 70%, fit to page
Please only describe only one bug/feature request per bug filed. This allows us to have a clear measure of when this bug is complete. Your main problem is that the text between the first and second pages of print outs is cut in half. I am aware of bugs for Mozilla Browser that have this issue. I need to check if we can dupe to that bug. For print on right click menu there is already a bug, which is bug 204519. As for the shrink to fit, I need to do some more searching on bugzilla.

I can confirm this bug on "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de-DE; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041027 Firefox/1.0RC1"
I can also cofirm this bug with RC2. Steps: 1. Goto: http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2616.html 2. Select a large portion of text 3. Print > Print Selection Result: Text is split in the middle of a line. Expected result: Text that doesn't fit at end of page gets bumped down to next page. The happens for me for any site. The problem is especially evident when there are images involved. Goto: http://www.zeldman.com/abc/, select all, and print selection and you'll see what happens.
Pictures are cut in two pieces as well. That looks strange :-)
at FF 1.0.7, there are still various problems with printing webpages when printing "selection" is used. That might well have to do with pages that are encoded to MS standards in some way, for all I know. There is the sliced through text line at the bottom of one page and top of next, there is the extra page with not much at the beginning or end, and these happen at times, but perhaps the most radical problem is that often, eg when printing a long newspaper article but using "selection",only one page of the text appears, with perhaps (usually) one of the junk pages, and the rest of the text utterly missing. I've seen this with my windows XPH computers and a couple of printers.

That might well have to do with > > And in Firefox 1.5 beta 1 ? I'm a bit nervous about trying to have 1.5 and 1.0.7 around simultaneously. I was very disappointed that the printing bug doesn't seem to have gotten much attention, and with that and time/energy considerations I'm planning on just waiting for the final 1.5 to arrive.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b5) Gecko/20051013 Firefox/1.4.1 With a text page as suggested initially, I still se this issue. Of the four pages of print I ran off, one has the line split across two pages. The suggestion of trying images gives me other issues - will investigate and may report separately. I guess this bug is in Core -> Printing rather than FF.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7 can confirm that this bug effects splitting of images as well as text. This happens commonly, and makes printing more than 1 page of text via the Print-->Selected virtually impossible. Can the Core Firefox bug 194413 be reopened?

This > happens commonly, and makes printing more than 1 page of text via the > Print-->Selected virtually impossible. Can the Core Firefox bug 194413 be reopened? I don't see the point of reopening bug 194413 - it is basically this bug, except there is more detail here and this one is marked new. The reason it's in Core (not FF) is that printing is handled by underlying code shared by FF, TB, SeaMonkey, ... As for the images, yes I agree the same problem is visible. But I had some other effects with the example in comment #4, which possibly deserve a separate bug. I thing the porblem is independent of what the content is - there is clearly some kind of problem detecting the end of a page accurately.
I can confirm the problems on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5 1) Only the first page of the selected text is printed 2) Only the top of the last line is shown i.e. the other half of the line would appear on the second page when there wouldn't be 1)
A possible clue. I've noticed this bug all along, and it's still there in WinXPH and FF1.5. However, the following might be a clue. In my printer properties, there's a checkbox for better grays. If I simply print a webpage, it works nicely, but as soon as I'm printing a selection, this adjustment is blatantly ignored. For what it's worth.
I've noticed another problem. Whenever an image is split, the part that goes on the next page is taken from the *top*; the amount is the same as the amount that would be taken from the rest of the image, but it's taken from the top instead. This has been occuring through many versions (not sure how far back), and is still in 1.0.7. I think I also saw it in one of the 1.5 RCs. Anyway, I don't suppose there's already a bug for this...
Oh yeah, and I'm seeing this bug (the topic of this page, that is) on Linux. So it's not just a Windows problem. Don't know about the wrong splitting though. Could be Xprint?
