Too Small When printing from the Internet

What would cause things printed from the Internet to print so small a magnifying glass is needed to read it? I use Firefox as the browser and the page looks fine on the screen but when printed is too small to read. I can copy and paste to Word and the size is OK but not when printed directly from Firefox?

Thanks!

Try to paste it first in some simple text editor like word-pad to loose the formation. Then you can copy/paste it again in word and choose your format. That should be help cause MS Word do interpret some hidden formats false.

You could Also simply go to File->Page Setup and make sure Shrink To Print isn't Checked.

Yes that is the other option but it helps not every time like word is programmed... to get 100% sure choose the first method.

OK, maybe I didn't make myself clear. When I copy and paste to Word the page prints fine. The problem is when I print directly from the page itself. And I do not see a ZOOM level anywhere on the page.

Zoom I was referring to is CTRL+Scroll wheel up and down.....

Dont use Firefox, not sure about that.  And you were crystal clear. Zoom inside the browser should be independent of Word. It would proabbly paste it at teh font specified inside Word.....

I do use Firefox. Have you looked at File->Page Setup yet in Firefox?  It might also be under the File->Print Preview option. Make sure the options are set to 100% and "Shrink to Page" is not checked.
