PDFs shrink to posage stamp size printing

more options

For the last week or so when I try to print a PDF from Firefox it shrinks to the size of a postage stamp. THe only way to print full size is to open in a PDF program and print from there.

This behavior does not change by altering print settings.

It sounds like you are using the system dialog and are using the setting to print multiple PDF pages per page.

  1. If you print the PDF file using 'Save to PDF', then the PDF output should look like the one input. If not, you could try to use the More settings > Scale > 200 option or make sure you have A4 selected as the paper type.
  2. Otherwise, maybe there are multiple printer configurations and the PDF program is not using the default printer or vice versa. If you are using the 'Print using the system dialog...' button, then make sure you have the correct printer selected there as well.

There was a printing bug in Firefox 90. If you update Firefox to 90.0.2 is this issue fixed? If not, you may also need to open the page `about:support` and click the "Clear saved print settings" button in the printing troubleshooting section.
