    Browsers generally don't print background colours and images. In IE7 the setting (off by default) is in Internet Options > Advanced. As a website developer, you don't have control over a user's setting for this.

    Firefox doesn't print backgrounds by default either. The setting is in File > Page Setup. Perhaps you've changed your Firefox setting and forgotten about it, but most users will have it at the default - off.
