Default Firefox truncating web pages

It happened some time ago that Firefox (FX3) truncated
a web page I tried to print. I first thought that it was
related to a bad html code, but now I discovered that this
happens with a lot of web pages, which all print
perfectly with Internet Explorer. A short google call
with "firefox truncating web pages" gaves me about 70000 hits, but no
real fix (I must confess I didn't read the 70000 entries)
I tried with FX2 and seamonkey with the same result: only 1 page printed
(idem with the print preview)

Has anybody a workaround ?

Can you give us a specific example? I know I print multiple page
websites from time to time and haven't noticed an issue. As a matter
of fact, I know of one site that prints better with FF than with IE7
on Windows. I suspect it's a case of either poor standards support
or just a lousy standard, but perhaps there's a work around.

here are 2 examples, from the same site:

http://www.leroymerlin.fr/mpng2-front/pre?zone=zonerecherche&intuitiontodo=searchproduct sfamily&family=panneaux-amenagement&photovisible=1&pageid=71&presentationi d=2&promo=1

the welcome page has the same issue
http://www.leroymerlin.fr/

It's surely related to bad html codes, but as I said, Google shows that there are a lot
of them.

PS: the print preview is enough for checking

I don't have Internet Explorer, but I do know this page won't print as
displayed in Firefox:

In this case I'm sure the flash is a big part of it - how do you print
a movie? You'll notice the flash just isn't in the printout at all.

Charlie's example is more interesting
http://www.ubuntulinux.org/getubuntu/downloadmirrors#alternate

That's really mucked up at the computer I'm at right now - FF3 on OSX

FWIW it's not an Ubuntu related issue; I have both FireFox and SeaMonkey
(versions 1.1.14, 1.1.15, and 2.0a3) installed directly from Mozilla -
not Ubuntu - and they all experience the same problem.

I suspect it is this bug:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154892
[Splitting Absolutely positioned frames not implemented - Missing second
page of content when printing or print previewing this site]
But, I'd put on a flameproof suit before attempting to reopen that bug.
I'm sure there are others still open that address this, but I can't find
them by just scanning bugzilla (there are too many related). Best bet
would be to point your newsreader to news.mozilla.org and then subscribe to:

mozilla.support.firefox
mozilla.dev.apps.firefox

for a current status on what's being done to fix the issue. If you
submit, or tag on to an Ubuntu/launchpad bug, the maintainer will just
do the same. So, eliminate the maintainer & go to the source... I'll
raise the issue using that particular url on mozilla.dev.apps.seamonkey.

Opera, on the otherhand, prints all 7 pages to cups-pdf. That's probably
a better browser/client to compare when reporting to the mozilla
folks... they tend to get a little testy when you throw IE at them :-)

sorry Brian, you are sure but in that case, are obviously wrong!
Doing print preview, you notice that the page content is actually printed
(apart the flash animation at the very top), but:

1/ the right part of the page is truncated
2/ the bottom is truncated

This has nothing to do with the flash at the top.
Another proof is that you get the full pages, without any truncation,
with Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera.

With Firefox, one can get the full page (without truncation in width and height), by
choosing a scale factor in print/"Page Setup",
and unchecking the "Ignore scaling" box in "Options"
For the 1st link I gave, one need a scale factor of 40%
to get the full page printed, and for the 2nd one,
40% is enough, but I think that one can't call that a workaround,
as if you have more than 2 or 3 printed pages, the width will be a
few centimeters.

I agree that this is not a Ubuntu issue, as the same occurs with
Firefox on Windows and MacOs. (but also with konqueror on Ubuntu...)
I'll try in firefox forums, but given the big number of times that has already
been reported, the odds to get a fix are rather small.

Default Firefox truncating web pages

I am using ubuntu 10.10 and icecat (firefox variant) 3.6.13

When I open this link http://askubuntu.com/ in firefox some text get cut.

When I open the same link in google chrome everything is okay.

I have met the same problem before, when I tried to do a visa payment, I
had to switch to google chrome to make the payment work - a payment
formular was cut when using firefox.

Can you post a snapshot on flickr or blog so that people can see how
it looks like on your machine.
Also tell if any add ons are installed on your machine in Firefox.
