Printed pages are cut off in Mozilla but not other programs


My printer is displaying strange behavior in Mozilla apps. Specifically, the text is too large and formatted improperly which causes the latter text of the page to get cut off; never printed. Ideas?

(This does not happen in non Mozilla apps)

I hope someone has an answer as I've never been able to find one for this. It seems to be a Mozilla bug as it happens in Firefox too.

What I have done as a work around is to just set my printer to print at 35-40% rather than 100% of scale in "page setup" every time I print from Firefox. Then nothing is cut off and it looks decent enough for my home usage. However, everything I print off is text so I don't know what this would do to images.

I found the answer.

Change *default-printer-resolution to 300 in /etc/Xprint/C/print/attributes/document and restart xprint (/etc/init.d/xprint restart)

Excellent. Where, may I ask, did you find the answer?
