There is no option within the print dialog box that allows the user to print the page(s) in landscape.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Firefox browser
2.Surf to any webpage
3.Go to File>Print
4.There are no options to set the page orientation to print in landscape
Actual Results:  
I close my browser and print within Safari.

Expected Results:  
Please, just add a little toggle to switch between "portrait" and "landscape" within the print dialog box so users can make the choice.

Please, please, please make this change.  You guys are geniuses.  I am developing a web application that prints a report and I have made sure everything works perfect in Firefox, but this is the only thing holding my development back and delivering to the client.  If there is a Javascript, Java, CSS or Actionscript solution for your browser please let me know.  Otherwise, can you again please make this change.

Kristopher: Can't you just go to File | Page Setup and make the orientation change there?
