Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 444630
Firefox prints pages using text-align: justify with mashed up fonts
Last modified: 2008-04-29 19:47:20 EDT
Description of problem:
Firefox prints pages using text-align: justify with mashed
up fonts. Firefox renders the pages properly on screen, but
its postscript rendering for printing mashes up the fonts as
shown in the attached postscript file.
An example webpage demonstrating the problem is at :
A very similar problem occurs in seamonkey (as described in
my recently submitted bug 444627) but seamonkey actually renders
the on-screen page with mashed up fonts as well as the printed
rendering. At least for the seamonkey issue, it is pango related
as compiling it without pango resolves the issue. I haven't
recompiled firefox without pango to test the printing problem
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.Print web page (to a file or printer)
Fonts are unreadable on printout where text-align: justify is used
Fonts should be readable

Postscript file from "Print to file" showing mashed up fonts
We found that this bug has been already registered in the upstream database

more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.
Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug
tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration
in future updates.
