I am under Gentoo Linux, firefox, seamonkey and epiphany (also checked with official firefox from and with a fresh configuration directory.

Browsers freeze when trying to print many wikipedia pages, for example:

Running "top" seems that firefox (and the others) are using more than 98% of CPU

I get no error when running them from a terminal

Opera and konqueror work ok

Thanks a lot for fixing this

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to
2.Click on print preview or print
Actual Results:  
Firefox freezes while "preparing"

Expected Results:  
Print or print preview should work properly

I have this problem under x86 and x86_64, with official build and Gentoo's compilation through emerge

For me, this got fixed between 2007-08-15-09-trunk and 2007-08-16-08-trunk, but I don't see anything relevant in that timeframe, and/or whether it would be appropriate for the branch (I'd guess not)

Odd, for me this is fixed by bug 285608 (on WinXP)

2007-06-26-04-trunk Hangs
2007-06-27-11-trunk No hang

Perhaps there was a Linux only bug also at work here.

Andrew, care to check a 2007-06-28 Linux build?

My 2007-06-28-09-trunk build hangs on print preview.
Right, thanks for checking. I rechecked the 2007-06-27-11-trunk build and it does indeed hang with scale set to 125%. No hang in 2007-08-16-05-trunk.

Maybe this page also triggered Bug 350684 (which became elusive after bug 285608 landed)

In any case this certainly seems to be fixed on the current trunk.

can you still reproduce with 3.6 or 4.0 beta?
WFM with beta on windows.
