Ah, I searched the... ZILLIONS :-O of plug-ins available for Firefox, and I think I found the one ! :-)

Here is a direct link to it:

Sadly it refuses to install on Dapper: FF pretends that that software/plug-in installation is disabled, and asks me to enable it in the preferences dialog. I looked in that dialog, but couldn't find any such option !! The best I could find was: "Warn me before installing stuff", with a white list of web sites, in which the mozilla site was obviously already listed, so should have worked.
Hopefully, I tried in Edgy and hte plug-in installs normally. I tried it and it works, well, PERFECTLY !
The image it produces is really 100% exactly what I can see on the screen ! :-)

Now, if it takes only this plug-ins to capture a page properly, why is printing so horribly broken out of the box ?? :-/
