Need a solution to decently print web pages
I just switched from Windows to Mac and still haven't found a good way to print web pages on paper or as pdf. Specifically, I am having troubles with header / footer margins and file sizes.
When using Firefox on Windows I can adjust print scale (in %) and margins so that any page I print looks good. pdf file size for a test page with a picture was 200 KB.
On OSX 10.7 I am having the following issues:
Space between header / footer and page top / bottom is much too large. There seems to be no way of changing it.
pdf file size for the same page is 435 KB, which is acceptable.
pdf file size is much too large: 1.6 MB!
Header / footer margins better than Safari but still too large and not customizable.
No page scaling is possible.
There is no print preview!
pdf file size much too large: 1.6 MB
Header / footer margins: Same problem as with Safari
So is there a solution that lets me
- adjust print scale
- and adjust header / footer margins
- and create small pdf files?

Not really, no.
In theory I should be able to set print margins in Safari. There's an option to define custom paper sizes. In that menu you can set a "non-printable area". But the settings I make there have no effect at all. Does anybody know if this is a bug?
