Description

7 years ago
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.

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.
