I am trying to print a web page with white text on black. Mozilla (released versions and daily build) swop it correctly to print black on white. However it misses the bullet points for each li item of ul lists, which I think its leaving white (you can't see them / they don't print...). This is easily reproducible and visible in print preview. If you use colours (not black/white) bullets appear ok, assume its related to the swop printing is doing compared to web screen view.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have white text on black background with a ul list and li items (of text)
2.Try to print it...

Actual Results:  
In print preview or paper output text is present but bullet points for each li item are missing, I believe they are being printed white on white

Expected Results:  
See bullets as well as text in print output

Guessing here but imagine theres a bit of a hack to swop text/background with white on black and its missing the bullet points from the list. Bullets do appear when use coloured text on black - in correct colour, ie. bug seems related to "clever" swop

Possibly - as long as "use colours from web page" set couldn't get the bullets to print with the text.
