User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0) Gecko/20110322 Firefox/4.0 Iceweasel/4.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0) Gecko/20110322 Firefox/4.0 Iceweasel/4.0

FF freezes when trying to print or print preview with
the settings
	File | Page Setup -> Landscape, (US-Letter, A4)
e.g. on the page
	http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/firefox/features/

On other pages like
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/
http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/press/2011/03/29/1429-mozilla-launches-firefox-4-for-android
it works, though.

However, with the settings
	File | Page Setup -> Landscape, (US-Legal, A5)
also the page indicated above doesn't cause any problems. 
Other formats than those used above have not been tested.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use settings "landscape" and paper format "US-Letter" or "A4".
2. Visit page http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/firefox/features/
3. Then try to print the page or print preview.

Actual Results:  
FF freezes.

Expected Results:  
To print the page or preview.

David, this looks like your stuff.

Firefox is not freezing when entering the print preview mode on the provided pages. 
The browser changed since this was reported and I don't know if there is a way to set the page layout and paper format before entering print preview. Considering these I will close the bug. If anyone can still reproduce the issue feel free to reopen.
