Consider preserving scroll position of iframes & other scrolled regions when printing

 1. Load
        (or any other page with scrollable iframe)
 2. Scroll the first iframe (yahoo) down and/or to the right.
 3. Print-preview.

ACTUAL RESULTS: Print preview has the iframe in its initial scroll state (scrolled to the top-left).

Perhaps we should preserve the scroll state of iframes (and "overflow:scroll" type content), so that printed output more directly matches what the user saw on the screen when initiating the 'print' action..

Keeping the scroll position makes sense. 

Btw, did we preserve scroll position in Fx3.6?

Nope, we didn't.  The STR here produce the same results for me in my 3.6 nightly as in my trunk nightly.

This is what Chrome currently does.
