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:
[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 and then subscribe to:

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

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 :-)
