Looks like a problem with the HP drivers

Just to add I'm pretty sure I didn't have these issues with Firefox 3.0-3.5. Also add info to above: Initially I hadn't installed any printer drivers however my Mac is sitting on a network with an HP LaserJet 3055 which OSX picked it up automatically. I also have an HP Photosmart C3100 via USB and just installed the latest HP drivers both via HP & the Apple Software update. I changed the printer from the LaserJet to the Photosmart printer - still get the same issue. Report here: bp-1d7c18b3-5b37-4dc8-a139-50ae92100323 23/03/2010 17:18 Also if I output to pdf wouldn't this be using a different software driver? As this is just built-in functionality on the mac. This also causes the issue...
