This happened recently, so not sure what changed. I know I did not upgrade firefox, it has stayed at version 43 since before this problem happened. When I go to print preview it looks the image attached. Also when I print, it prints a tiny box on a 8.5 x 11 paper. I tried the other solutions suggested here, making sure my margins are 12.7 mm and that print height and print width are set to -1. Set print preview to "Shrink To Fit". Nothing has helped.

If I use IE or Chrome, print preview shows 1 page at a time and the outcome is that a full image is printed. This happens on any website I go to w/Firefox, so its not just google maps.

Any idea on what may be causing this and how to fix it? Its frustrating.

I'm using XP as my OS.
