How to enlarge printing from website pages and emails-currently too small.


I have two browsers internet explorer and Firefox, along with windows vista. I down loaded version 4.0.1. I have just noticed that the fonts are super tiny when I print from web pages and my emails. I cannot say for sure that the new version is responsible for this malfunction. I tried changing the font type and size via your instructions from the knowledge base with no success. I need to know how I can correct this problem or direct me on how to download an earlier version of Firefox for Vista.

Chosen solution

File > Page Setup = Scale
100% is usually best

Printing at 100% didn't work for me, despite setting my screen fonts at up to 14 points, etc.

What DID work for me is to go to Tools/Options/Content/Advanced and set the minimum font size to 12 points. That made the text larger.
