    I have this issue in both Safari and Firefox. I am on a webpage and use CMD P and then I open the PDF drop down menu in the bottom right of the screen and select "Open PDF in Preview". When I examine the bottom of the Preview document in FIREFOX and then scroll down to the top of page two I am finding that I am missing 3-4 lines of the original webpage. I can not tell you how many pages of PDF documents I have saved before finding that I was missing the 3-4 lines of data.

    In Safari if I do the same steps I find that the break is exact and there is not any loss of the webpage. I am not able to adjust the size of the Preview document to keep the break from occurring in the middle of a line of text.

    Does anyone have these problems with these two web browsers?

    Are you able to change the break point in the Preview document?

    The 'break point' relates to the specified paper size of the current print queue.

    FireFox has a habit of handling things differently. Check it's not defaulting to US Letter when the rest of the print system is using A4, or vice versa.
