Printed font appears to be oversized, especially for printing. But the table/grid is the expected size. The zoom option was reset but didn't improve things.

The problem computer is running Firefox 51. Nothing has been printed in past weeks ... so we don't know when the problem happened. But today the attempt to print the page results in oversized font being displayed within the normal sized html table borders. At the same time, the large monitor (which is connected as a 2nd monitor to a laptop) may also be displaying larger font -- with an occasional messing up of our intranet site's web page.

Zoom was reset. The basic page style option was already selected.

The css for html has this font instruction: font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

Then the body specifies: font-size: .8em

When trying to print , the "Shrink to fit Page size" option is selected.

The font appears to be 40% too big.

(this is a problem on a windows 7 laptop. I didn't get to try SAFE mode on that computer.)

Hi mikesw,

Firefox 51 is an old version of Firefox, you might want to upate to the last version (57). Please be aware that if you have any add-ons installed they might stop working in 57.
