why does 3.6.13 cut off part of each printed page 3.6.12 ok on computers we haven't upgraded, IE okay on all machines

After I upgraded two of our computers (both running Vista) to Firefox 3.6.13 I noticed that the top was cut off of printed web pages to all printers. I tried IE(8.0.6001) and it printed correctly on both. This had not been a problem using 3.6.12, in fact another one of our Vista computers had not been upgraded and it still printed correctly. I've done nothing to printing preferences to either of the computers running 3.6.13 and compared all settings to the 3.6.12 computer and they're identical.

I recently upgraded to Firefox 4.0, but for several reasons, I need to revert to 3.6. I uninstalled 4.0 via the control panel, and then downloaded 3.6 from this link: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html. After the install, I opened Firefox, and it is somehow running 4.0. I uninstalled and restarted several times, and I checked to make sure that the file it says it is installing is 3.6.16. What am I doing wrong? I really need to get back to 3.6...

In the previous version of FF, it recreated a new tab, but when I just tried it, the closed tab replaced an existing tab in my browser. Both were on the same website, was that why? This was not what I wanted -- I did really want it to reopen the closed tab while leaving the existing one alone.

I often rely on my Norton Toolbar for sites, and it does not work with the new updates. Can I uninstall recent Mozilla updates until this add-on works with Mozilla, or am I stuck? Thanks!

It's probably really easy to figure this out and uninstall the updates but, well, I'm slightly tech-illiterate! I use my Norton Toolbar a lot for those sites I visit infrequently, and this non-compatibility issue is the same reason I stick with Mozilla over Chrome, but now I can't even use my Norton information with Mozilla. Thanks.

The version worked fine so far, but I am just not pleased with the layout and would rather switch back to the latest 3 version. My online MBA Program can work in IE sometimes (perish the thought), but it is optimized for firefox. That is what led me here and I have been devout ever since.
