Description Andrew Schretter 2008-04-29 12:25:47 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):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open firefox
2.Browse to
3.Print web page (to a file or printer)
Actual results:

Fonts are unreadable on printout where text-align: justify is used

Expected results:

Fonts should be readable

We found that this bug has been already registered in the upstream database
(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=431427) and believe that it is
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.

Thank you for the bug report.
