Firefox 18 now prints a page using enlarged fonts so that information will not fit on A4 page. How can this be fixed?

Posted

When trying to print a page such as a bank statement, Firefox 18 now prints in a large font size so that information does not fit on the page (A4). Previously, there was no problem and the information printed out exactly as on the screen. When printing from Google Chrome there is no problem. In previous versions of Firefox there was no problem. What has changed and how can it be corrected?
