Firefox prints small (or large) fixed.

The other day I tried printing my own UK Postage Label from paypal. This happened to coincide with me having a quick go with Google Chrome. Printed OK at first but when I came to print another label for another parcel it refused to cooperate.

So quick switch back to Firefox (3.6.8) and worked fine first time, except it printed label quite a bit smaller than Chrome. So had a go in IE and this also worked fine, be it slow, and printed out label same size as Chrome.

So after a spot of googling discovered fix.

My Print Preview was set at 80%. Reset it to 100% and it printed out label at correct size. It appears from other Google hits that this size often gets adjusted at Firefox upgrades.
