"Save As" page comes up when I try printing from Firefox

Posted

When I use my Verizon DSL and Firefox (this doesn't happen if I use Int. Explorer) and I wish to print internet info, I do a Ctl. P to print. Instead of printing, I receive a "Save As" page that I cannot stop from appearing. The page includes: "Save As" at the top with a box for saving to (Ex.: documents), then has a listing across of "Name," "Date Modified," "Type," "Size," and "Tags" across the top. Then a listing of items such as Games, My Stationery, New Folder, Sansa, Updater. Then at the bottom there is a listing for "File Name" with a box for the name. Then under that a "save As Type" (PDF). Then a save or cancel button.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

I can not print anything from Firefox but on IE everything prints just fine. I happen to like Firefox a whole lot better so would appreciate a solution to my problem.
