print (&preview) only prints small portion of page

When I use print preview, I see only a small portion of the upper left hand corner of the page, and if I try and print, that's exactly what prints.

I can scale down smaller to see the entire page, but it is still displayed in that small corner, and when printed is also reduced in size.

Thanks for response.

I should have added that I had tried that reset you suggested earlier, and now that entry isn't there any more. But it didn't help.

Then, just now I tried the third suggestion in the list. Everything was as it should be, right sized paper, no multiple pages/sheet, etc.

BUT, without changing anything, when I went back to try it again, it seems to be fixed.

I'm a little more confused, but I'll take a win no matter how I get it.  ;-)

Could you try resetting the printer settings saved in Firefox's preferences? The steps are listed in #1 in this article: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Problems_printing_web_pages

Does that help?

Note: please check for preferences similar to paper width and paper height.
