When I tried to print my phone statement of 8 pages, failed to print all but 1 and 2nd pages, inserting a blank page in the middle of the two.. Also in the preview mode. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Print version of the statement from cingular page.
2.See in the browser an 8 page document
3.File/print preview. Only shows 3 pages out of 8: 1st, blank, 2nd.
4.File/Print. It prints 3 pages out of 8:1st, blank, 2nd. 

Expected Results:  
To print the 8 pages as they are shown in the screen

Save tha page to my hardisk as htm and opened from the browser. Same results.
The page and printing options work fine in the current version 1.0.7
Using on Windows XP/2000 when printing a web page that is more than 1 page the output gets truncated. Found the problem when printing email from Yahoo Email.

Works when using I.E.
I confirm this.
On two different machines running Windows XP Pro and Firefox some websites will print only the first page. For example:

It does not matter what printer, networked or local.

IE 6 prints the whole article.
Bug also exists in Firefox 2.0.
I am using Firefox on a Windows XP-Pro. 

When I print from my Yahoo email account if the text of the email is longer than will fit onto a single page, 3 pages are printed. It prints the header as one page, the first page of text as one page, then the footer as a separate page. The only way I can print the full content of the email is if I first select the text then choose the print "Selection" option.

When I "Print Preview" the same email I get the same result except I can see part of the page that is not being printed underneath the border that shows the page that will be printed.

This problem does not occur when I print the same email on Internet Explorer 6. It also does not happen if the full content of the email can be printed as a single page.
Same on Firefox Windows 2000.

I've attached 4 Files:
