Netscape 3.0 printing slow

When I print a copy of a web page from my browser, (using the toolbar or the menu) sometimes it reads the file, sends it to the printer and it prints - not a problem.  Then on a subsequent attempt, it will hang when I get to the "printing page 1" message, and sometimes I just get a little flicker of the screen and that's all?! There is no pattern that I can find.  In fact I had this problem printing out some of the screens from this great site, and then subsequently had none.  Originally I thought it was due to selecting the print option before the page was fully downloaded, but I've been waiitng until the browser tells me "Document: Done" and still am having this problem.  Any suggestions?? I'm using Win 3.1, on a 486DX 100Mhz sytem with 12M RAM, and a Canon BJ-200e printer.
