Printing Again - gray background when printing

Gray background when printing but not visible on the screen.


I bugzilla-ed this WYSIWYG failure and the bugzilla was marked as not a bug.
I think the gray should show on the screen the same as it prints as it is
annoying. I wish we could re-bugzilla this and get it fixed as I believe
that it is definitely not a feature.
