Iceweasel 3 / Firefox 3 Printing Issues

I have a problem with printing inside iceweasel 3. When i print anything, either in pdf or on a regular printer from iceweasel, the page titles and address and date at the top and bottom of the page respectively print well. The remainder, which is the content of the pages doesn't print well at all. It just jumbles up the letters. It almost looks like it overlaps a lot of letters. Is this a pretty common issue?


EDIT: Only some pages don't work. This forum actually prints well. It looks good on the screen but prints wrong.

Maybe I'm stating the obvious, but have you had a look at File->Page Setup? Make sure the scale is right and page orientation is good.

Page setup, orientation, and size are all OK. Some pages work fine, others just don't. It is mostly forums or places where there are multiple tables and css divisions where it doesn't work right. Does the same thing in another debian system we have. For instance,'s forums.
