Firefox & IE creating extra page when printing

When printing in Firefox and IE, it generates an extra page, and I’m not sure why. It’s not printing an extra page in Chrome, but I have a bad feeling that 75% of the people that use this portion of the site use Firefox or IE, and I find that there is nothing more annoying that printing a blank page.

Here is the website:

if you click on one of the postings under "most recent … " you’ll see a print button…

Here is the CSS:

Thanks in advance

There are no blank pages for me in Chrome/FF33/IE11.

The second page htat prints out only have two paragraphs on it so is it possible that a blank space or two made it onto the print document so that’s being printed as well? Is all the content on your prints?

I just printed out copies for IE/FF (Chrome gives me a preview) and all content was there, two pages for each borwser (with the second page having 1/4th a page of content)

Same here.

I get 2 copies in Firefox, IE and chrome.

If I reduce margins and change font-size I get one page in all.

Thanks! I got it all down to one page, in each browser. I removed some more content, reduced my heading sizes, and decreased my font sizes.
