Why are Firefox and Thunderbird printing everything in landscape?


They both have "portrait" selected in the page setup.
PDFs and other documents print just fine.
It's only emails and web pages that print in landscape.
Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Here's the funny thing: when I select landscape, it prints landscape but on portrait. That is, I get the right half of a landscape email printed on the top part of a portrait page.
Does that make sense??

What you said makes sense, why it does it doesn't make much sense. I presume you are using cups, try entering localhost:631 into your browser. Click on 'manage printers' and then 'configure printer' and see what settings there are in there. That's the best I can come up with at the minute.
