How do you adjust Firefox to print what is on email page without adding a 1 inch left marghin to that page as it cuts off some of the right side of the page?

When I receive an email the page often has a certificate that I would like to print. Using the print function at the top of the page brings up the email as a page as it looks in my web email. When I hit the print button on that page there is always a 1 inch margin added to the printed page cutting off the right side of the desired page to be printed.

My printer accepts what ever I send it from word, pdf files as they appear on the screen, Why doe Firefox not send the same images as is displayed to the printer?

This seems to occur whenever the screen shows an image that is almost border to border and not text. When a margin is part of the email message or it is text this doesn't seem to occur.

HELP Please. I really need to be able to print what is displayed to print the proper document.

Thanks

Some pages add their own margin to the minimum margin set in Page Setup. First you might reduce the margin here:

Alt+f (displays the classic File menu) > Page Setup > Margins & Header/Footer tab

Second, you could try using Shrink to Fit. However, if the image is a background image rather than part of the content of the page, that might not have any effect.

Thank you. Your solution taught me how to do something that should have been intuitive. I truly appreciate you answering this for me.
