It appears like a one page of 1.5 pages at most.
I click on file -> print -> print preview and it tells me there are 4 pages

It arranges the page contents into one narrow column that spans 4 pages.
Why??? Firefox is wasting my paper and in addition adding to waste,
not to speak of destruction of a very valuable resource: TREES!!!!!


Reproducible: Always

No I have not. Reason is that I only install
the rpm packages from Fedora repository. Much
easier and cleaner to deal with (as far as installation,
removeal, updates and even invocation (i.e. /usr/bin/firefox
always will run the latest FF binary).
