I don't print many mail, this issue as been reported on the italian forum by an user 
 I think this is important for  companies that needs to maintain an archive on paper.
As workaround, the printingtools extension solve this issue:

since version 0.2.18.
Whiteboard: [gs]
Many user report this on Gsfn too, it seems to be a regression of Thunderbird 5.
Confirming. I'm pretty sure this is a regression from bug 294356. I will ruminate on this and perhaps upload a patch in a bit...

Attached patch Fix thisSplinter Review
Here's a fix. It's pretty straightforward. Maybe tests would be nice, but I have no idea how to go about doing that, and it seems like it'd be a lot of work to test this anyway...
