** Description changed:

- Binary package hint: mozilla-firefox
+ some web pages (example: show attachment) cannot be printed using
+ programs like firefox2, firefox3, epiphany-browser, open-office-writer
+ in ubuntu because the only the first page is rendered and the document
+ is cropped thereafter.
  
- I was not able to print a long web page, since it prints only the first one.
- It does also affect the print preview, which tries to fit the whole web page on one printer page.
+ all of the programs can display the page but are unable to generate a
+ printing version. i.e. printing on hardware printers, printing to
+ software printers, displaying print previews and switching to print
+ layout (open office only) shows only the first page.
+ 
+ speculation: this is because certain html-entities (special tables?!?)
+ are believed to be non-breakable where in fact they should be split onto
+ two pages.

** Summary changed:

- mozilla-firefox printing system is not able to print on more than 1 page
+ ubuntu/gnome printing system is not able to print on more than 1 page in some cases
