My printing is also very jumbled after installing the latest 4.0 Beta 12 patch. Was working fine in Beta 11 and works in all other browsers. Please fix Beta 12.

Same here. All previous Beta updates worked fine, but since upgrading to version 12, the printing is screwed up (like the example above, by another user).

Can we go backwards in versions?

In the Help menu select "About Firefox" to check for updates. This should install Firefox 4 RC1
