On Firefox, all TWiki topics print only the first page.

I explored this some more and discovered that the problem appears with the overflow:hidden that is inserted by pattern skin and some CSS. When this attribute is set, Firefox only prints the first page. Somebody on the web mentioned that "Maybe Firefox interprets the overflow:hidden as a command to hide text when overflowing to another page in the print?"

In any case, it is not a good thing that TWiki only prints the first page on a multipage topic. It is worth investigating this further.

I remember we did some fix for 5.0.0 on FF print issue. Could you please check using twiki.org? For testing you can force the pattern skin using ?skin=pattern URL parameter.

Here is the related fix: Item6416 and TWiki:Support/SID-00783.

The fix on http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Support/SID-00783 appears to resolve this problem.

Cool! Thanks for reporting back. This fix is already in 5.0.0.
