Firefox print to PDF (and CUPS) only saves the first 1 or 2 pages to PDF
 
When I go to "Print to PDF" in Firefox, I only get the first 2 pages or so in the PDF. It's the same situation when I use "Print with CUPS." Strangely this problem only happens with Firefox and Galeon, not Epiphany - so I print from Epiphany, and I get the entire document.

I'm running F14, and I didn't have this problem in F9, which I used prior to F14 (separate installation, not an upgrade). I've done quite a bit of Internet research trying to figure this out and troubleshoot before I posted here, but I have not been able to identify what the problem could be.

I would immensely appreciate any guidance or insight into this. Thanks a ton!!

I just converted a multi-page from a web site using FF. The original doc was in a small window with no menu so I right clicked and did save as. then clicked the HTML file in my save directory and after it was in the main window of FF I clicked print as PDF. It saved a PDF file to my directory of choice and I checked it out in Adobe Reader. It was about 5 or 6 pages and was saved perfectly. I then did the same thing with another web page and on checking it was perfect. What I use in FF is an add on called printpdf 0.76 which puts the option in the file menu. So far, it works great. Hope this helps you. I didn't realize that FF had an option in the print setup box to print PDF. I just thought the add-on would be handy and it is. Just dumb luck I guess?
