How do I get the internet page to print normal?

I used to be able to print pages from the internet with no problem at all. Now all of a sudden when i try to print a page, they come out very small. How can I fix this problem? Is it in the settings somewhere?

Re: How do I get the internet page to print normal?

Could you check your "shrink to fit" and scaling settings? Easiest way is:

tap the Alt key > File > Page Setup

The default would be

  • Scale: 100
  • Shrink to fit checked (this disables editing the Scale box, but you can uncheck it, edit, then re-check it)

If those are at their default settings, perhaps they do not work well for particular pages? You can use Print Preview to examine how shrink-to-fit works on that page and override it by using a different percentage instead.


Occasionally Firefox printer data gets garbled and manual adjustments don't seem to work. In that case, you can "reset" those printer settings. This article has the steps: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Problems_printing_web_pages#Reset_printer

The Scale was on 30 and I put the 100 in. I unchecked the the shrink to fit and then rechecked it, then it blacked out the Scale. So I'll try what you suggested and see if it works. Thanks for the help.
