IE8 Print page breaks within html row

Our app uses IE8 and generates a report in html (tables and rows).  When I print that report within IE8, the long rows of data sometimes page breaks within the row whereas if I open that report and try it under Firefox, the print breaks where expected and does not chop off words in the middle of a row (printing only the top half of a row).  I have tried some changes in the CSS but there must be some other solution within IE8 settings etc.

The solution: "Use Firefox" is not an acceptable answer.

Thank you in advance for your guidance.
