Is this on the same machine?  Same report?

If different machines are they using the same printer driver?

If those arent the issue then this is a browser problem not Crystal.

Crystal uses the default printer driver to render the display.  If you are changing printers between machines you will have issues with making them look the same.  

This white paper addresses some of the issues you will need to keep in mind to get reports to render/print the same when using different printers.  Following these tips may help resolve some of the issues wth different browsers.
