Select File > Print... and tell it you want to print to a file. Here are the problems you will now notice: * It takes an absurdly long time, like over five minutes, to print the file. * The resulting output file is over 8MB, which is absurdly huge. * The resulting file is garbage -- all of the tables are drawn wrong, with overlapping text all over the place. * The print status pop-up stays on the screen forever until you mouse over it (or perhaps just give the firefox window focus or something, not sure exactly, but it certainly doesn't go away on its own if you aren't focused on the firefox window, which it should). I encountered all these problems with firefox-3.0-0.beta3.28.nightly20080226.fc9.i386. In contrast, with seamonkey-1.1.8-4.fc9.i386, it takes like 15 seconds to print, the resulting output file is less than 2MB, the printout is correct, and the print status pop-up goes away when printing is completed. ----- I could very well reproduce it both with the Fedora package as well as with the upstream binary. Printing of the attached file took more than two minutes and the resulting PDF was 4.4MB. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.see above 2. 3. Actual Results: slow and huge Expected Results: seamonkey is able to print this fast and with smaller PDF
