(The print preview is fine, and so is the postscript file if printed to .ps.) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to the front page of news.bbc.co.uk. 2. Do Ctrl-P for print, select "Print to File" and choose PDF format. 3. Open the PDF file in any viewer. Actual Results: The text and images overlap a lot, everything looks broken. Expected Results: I expect the pdf to look like the ps output. The generated pdf file is also very large. Correct PDF output can be obtained by either (1) selecting "Print to File" --> "Postscript" and then converting to pdf; or setting up a PDF printer with cups-pdf and printing to that. I have build this Firefox 3.0b5pre on my own machine with --enable-system-cairo; I don't know if that is a factor.
Created attachment 308419 [details] Screenshot showing the problem The PDF file exhibiting the problem is rather large (unexpectedly so --nearly 2M); so I am attaching a smaller png screenshot of what the displayed PDF file looks like on my screen. Either evince or acroread produce similar results here.
do you see this issue still with version 3.6 or 4.0 beta?
