Description

13 years ago
Trying to print the April 15, 2005 issue of the "Schneier on Security" web log
(see URL) shows some problems.

1. The first page contains only the heading text "Bruce Schneier".  The rest of
the page is wasted blank space that does not appear on the screen version.
2. The second page contains the partial line "By focusing on the fraudulent use
of  personal data..." (the bottom half of the letters do not appear).  The rest
of this final paragraph does not appear anywhere.  The third page begins with
the Comments section.

It looks like there's an attempt either by the page or the browser to fit all
the content into well-paginated Letter-sized pages, but I'm using A4.

There's no Printing component in Firefox, so General will have to do.

Problem exists in Firefox 1.5 Beta 1, other versions untested as yet.

Possibly related to bug 216195, bug 299234, or bug 282058.

The entire page "body" (the main content part plus the navigation menu) is
contained within a single table row (<tr> tag).  Ugh.

Please don't create bugs marked as NEW in the wrong product/component, if you're
unsure then file them as UNCO, thanks.
