Increase printout font size Mandrake 9.0

Is there a way to increase font size in Mandrake 9.0?
I have old Dell Optiplex GXa with Epson Color 400 printer which often prints so small it is not possible to read.
This is mostly on Mozilla when printing out web pages. Paper size default is letter.
Font size on monitor appears as normal.
Any help on how to increase print out size will be gratefully received.
Thank you.

If it's just Mozilla you are having problems with, have you tried increasing the font size for the page you wish to print (by using Ctrl +) and then printing?

Thanks for your reply Tino27.
I did try your idea, increased font size on monitor to about 16 but print out was same,
still very small.
I have tried deleting and re-installing printer however that does not solve the problem.
Any further help appreciated.
