Lets have an example from a german website: Load

https://www.golem.de/news/navigation-go ... 94609.html

Into new FF v90 or later and print it (into PDF file with e.g.PDF creator).

As you can see the right end of the text lines are cut before end.

I think thats a bug.

This bug was not present in FF until v89.

So whats wrong?

Turning off new simplified printing does not help

Release Notes for Firefox 90.0

Printing a page with scaling may result in truncated output (bug 1720621)

PDF output is cut off

Print scaling causes missing content in printout

Work is underway to fix this, but I don't know whether we'll get a 90.0.2 patch or whether this will have to wait for Firefox 91...

Thanks for the update (here and in the other thread). Good to know it is at least being looked into and will be fixed with luck at some point in the not too distant future.
Cheers

The patch was in today's "Nightly" (alpha test version of Firefox 92) and it tested out okay. Next it's going to go into the beta of Firefox 91, hopefully before the end of the week. But I still don't know whether there will be a 90.0.2.

Patch has been approved for 90.0.2 - watch for the new build in the coming days, I would imagine perhaps next day or two.

Appears that 90.0.2 is out, in another thread the OP stated he got notification of an update.
If you have not been offered yet try: Help->about Firefox see if you get offered the update.

Thanks, updated and the print all shows.

It has tweaked the font somewhat but I am not worrying about that.

Thanks again :-)
