Hello:

 

Using an HP Photosmart Premium 410a with MacMini (Snow Leopard).  We use both Firefox 11.0 and Safari 5.1.5. Browsers   When we print multiple pages from an article, the first pages prints out (and shows in Preview) a smaller size font then the rest of the pages from the same article.  We have tried various tests (resetting the printer, reinstalling the latest HP software, reinstalling each of the browsers, running Permissions),

but so far, this problem continues to occur.   We have also used both a USB and a Network connection.

 

This has only been occuring when we print articles directly from various web article pages (PDF files print fine as do other printed items that are downloaded)

 

Any input on this greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you

    Great work!

     

    Not sure what it means, but in FF on hers check File>Page Setup for possible clues.

    It was great to find that it worked correctly in another Profile.

     

    I think you're on to it, but I can't find anything in my profile using about:config that looks like it could affect only the 1st page.

     

    Can you make a new test profile for her & see if it prints like yours or hers?

    all of our Firefox Bookmarks that  we draged from the URL Address Box to the Desktop have somehow been  converted from the saved bookmark to our Firefox Start Page.

    Do you mean that when starting FF it opens to those Desktop Bookmarks?

     

    What does FF Preferences say for your Start/home page?
