I was looking to a way to add a watermark to every printed page, and I came up with this page (http://www.aequimast.com/prodotto.php?ref=B2042B93). However, even if in the print preview the page is rendered correctly, upon printing the only thing that gets printed is the watermark.
The same page prints correctly in IE6.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://www.aequimast.com/prodotto.php?ref=B2042B93 (or similar page)
2. Print the page

Actual Results:  
Only the watermark gets printed.

Expected Results:  
The page contents should have been printed with the watermark overlayed.

Does this also happen with a trunk build from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/ ?

On the trunk the watermark has a solid black background, which obviously doesn't allow the page contents to be printed.
Note: the overlay image is a PNG-8.

do you see this issue still with version 3.6 or 4.0 beta?

The page above changed so I can't test it anymore. Recreating something similar based purely on the description above I gave 4 and a half years ago doesn't show the error, at least when printing to a PDF virtual printer (I don't have a printer to test with).
wfm per reporters comments, no longer reproducible
