I bag a pardon - I just mentioned that the same FF works for many other web
sites and that it is not up to the site owner to correct this - either by
workaround or by contacting FF and making pressure.
I do not understand why I should change my behavior and as Gene mentioned
start a program that by default is compromised just to print one single
page.

Who know, who knows ... nowdays anything is possible ... and if you believe
or not I have found out many sites that pretend to be something they are
not most of all NGOs funded by CIA. And it is not only sites, but companies
and people as well, so in fact I can not be sure even who you are or who is
Gene, though with Gene all seems to be OK - but with you promoting Chrome -
come on ... tell me I have to run windows to print the stupid pages :) ...
and please do not take it personal.

Thanks, might be FF problem, but it is up to the site owner to provide a
solution or to get in touch with FF. The ignorance of the site owner speaks
for itself, or do you have any communication on the issue with
stackexchange.

Thanks and regards
