Description

7 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:5.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0
Build ID: 20110615151330

Steps to reproduce:

I tried to print the page at C-Span's BookTV schedule:
http://www.booktv.org/schedule.aspx


Actual results:

Only the top part printed. And there were nearly empty pages before and after with just the frame's marginal words.


Expected results:

The entire page should have printed on 3 pages, WYSIWYG.
That's a half-century old way of saying What You See Is What You Get.
That's what should always happen.

Apparently applies to all OS's.

OldMr, thanks for your report.  There's a print-friendly version of the page.  Just press the button that says "Open Print Version".  Next time please be more patient with user support.

Confirming the bug, but shouldn't this be marked a duplicate or WONTFIX?

Also, maybe it would be a good idea to capture and print scrolling output, as a new feature.  I know some screen shot programs do this.

I don't understand "Please be more patient". I wrote a report. How is that "impatient"?
Also, "Open Print Version" is a completely different page, one with no pictures.
That's not the same thing at all, I don't know why you think that's the same.
What if I asked to print out the front page of the NY Times and you said, Okay, but just the text? That wouldn't be an adequate solution, would it, with all the pictures missing?

The page doesn't print correctly in IE8 on Windows XP either.  This issue may be a site-specific problem.

Firefox also fails to print all of the front page of the NY Times.
