Description

7 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; hu-HU; rv:1.9.0.19) Gecko/2010062510 Iceweasel/3.0.6 (Debian-3.0.6-3)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; hu-HU; rv:1.9.0.19) Gecko/2010062510 Iceweasel/3.0.6 (Debian-3.0.6-3)

The sentences on the print preview after the item "Expand All Steps" is clicked are overlapping each other. The preview itself is correct in that way that this messed view will be also printed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the URL
2. Click "Expand All Steps"
3. Open Print Preview
4. Go to the second page and see the result on it.
Actual Results:  
The page is messed up.

Expected Results:  
Correctly rendered page.

Works for me - Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.6) Gecko/20100625 Firefox/3.6.6

Please test against a supported version of Firefox. 3.0.19 was the last security update in March 2010.

Checked with 3.6.6 on Windows, it does not produce the bug. (Unfortunately I don't have the chance to test 3.6.6 on the originally problematic OS, since 3.6.6 is not yet Debian packaged).

You don't need to install a debian package to use Firefox builds on Debian -- just download Firefox (as a  .tar.gz bundle) from http://getfirefox.com/ and extract it to your desktop, and run the "firefox" binary in the extracted folder.  (You'll need to close all open firefox windows before running the new firefox binary, though, or else it will just pop up a new window in the existing firefox process.)

The build downloaded from the above link with version 3.6.6 on Debian Linux produces the bug, it does not render the page correctly.
Can you attach a PS or PDF of the broken output, and describe what doesn't render correctly?  (Use "Print to file" in the linux build from comment 4)  I don't notice anything obviously broken when print-previewing this bug's eclipse.org URL -- I tested both Firefox 3.6 and a trunk build, on Ubuntu 10.04.

Broken PDF output

This PDF shows the broken print output on the second page of the PDF. The print preview is broken in the same way as the PDF.
Ah, thanks for the PDF -- now I see that I was doing the wrong thing here in step 2 of the STR from comment #0:
> 2. Click "Expand All Steps"

There are actually multiple "Expand All Steps" buttons -- I was clicking the first one (which has no effect on a just-loaded page, FWIW).

To get output that matches your attached PDF, I need to click a different "Expand All Steps" button a little further down -- under "Steps", and right above "Review the requirements to be tested".

If I click *that* button, I can indeed reproduce the problem in the latest nightly:
