Build ID: 20130409194949

Steps to reproduce:

Print a PDF document (on A4 paper)

Actual results:

The right edge and bottom has a black line which isn't there on the one printed by the Adobe reader.  Additionally, where the page is rotated, the areas outside the paper area is filled in black, which is unsightly and expensive in terms of printer ink!

Printing with scale factors to shrink the page also get black areas on the unprinted areas.

Expected results:

If nothing else, there ought to be an option to have white instead of black background. However arguably this default ought to be white out of the box.

beta patch

Although a simple patch but we have already gone to build for our final beta build for Fx21 not approving for beta, this looks good to go on aurora though

Do we know when this will land to m-c? We'll skip process and uplift sooner if need be, but would rather not.
We're hoping Friday, but we're still waiting on a few bugs we need to fix before updating.  If it's not looking like it will make it by the end of Thursday I'll create a patch for m-c.
