I just finished designing a basic html page in Dreamweaver.
The page has a table inserted with some text in it.
A print-preview in Firefox re-aligns the text incorrectly.
A print-preview in Iexplore prints out correctly each time.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.creat a html page in Dreamweaver with a table and some text
2.print-preview in Firefox
3.print preview in Iexplore

Actual Results:  
The text in the Firefox preview is not aligned as in Iexplore

Expected Results:  
It should have kept the alignment that Iexplore displayed

This happens to me on page.

Attaching screenshot of print preview.

I think this bug needs to be change to a major severity. Print preview is an
important function.
