If I print the doucment normally this does not happen. This is true for this page as well as any other page on which an image is selected. I could find no other mention of this bug. I have a Canon i9100 and am using Firefox Beta 2 for Windows 2000. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Select a long section of text to print, ideally one that will span more than two pages (to ensure that on at least one of the pages the text breaks in the middle of a line) 2. Go to file > Print and select Selection 3. Click OK Actual Results: As specified in Details, lines of text are cut when printing. Expected Results: Text should be cut inbetween lines, so that all lines can be read as normal. I am not entirely sure that I have the correct severity selected, however I decided to go with Major because printing selections of web pages is a major feature, at least as far as I am concerned, and thusly qualifies it as greater than Normal.
I can confirm that this has been a bug since Firefox 1.0 and still exists in 1.5 beta 2. OS: Windows XP SP2 Printer: HP Deskjst 5550 Mozilla Forum Topic: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=320105
