I do not know what browser you are using or which flavor of linux but the 
one thing I rarely have a problem with is using extra paper when printing.
and if this is a regular problem just do a "print preview" and print the 
pages that you want and skip the blank pages, and I have and do use 
several diifferent flavors of linux and a couple different browsers and do 
not have this problem, (have other problems, but not this one)
