Description of problem:
This is probably a generic printing problem for those who prints on the A4 page format.
When printing some web-pages (example given) the last few characters at the right margin is cut of. Changing the margin in the page setup keeps cutting of exactly the same width of the text at the right margin. The amount that's cut off is about the difference between the width of US Letter and A4. It's exactly the same both with what's shown in the page preview and what's printed.
My printer is CUPS (Laserjet 4L on an USB port) with A4 page size. It's the default printer and has option media=A4. It also prints a testpage with correct margins.
I suspect that Firefox base it's calculation of the page width and wraps lines assuming that the page width is US Letter. But it prints the result with the width of an A4 page.
I have tried changing the printer options between A4 and US Letter with no difference.
There's no way to get all the text on the long lines printed. I have had similar problems with Firefox in a Windows environment. But there is was possible to get all the text by changing the margins. I therfore think this is an old Firefox problem. But it's exreamly annoying.
