When I retrieve a color-rich page such as a mapquest routing with maps, if I
print for "greyscale" I get the same sizes of font and figure as the display.
However, when I print in color, all the sizes appear enlarged, perhaps as much
as 150% (hard to measure) with the result that only part of the visible page
area is within the printers bounding box.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Retrieve a page with lots of color
2. Print the page, selecting 'greyscale' output
3. Print the page again selecting 'color' output

Actual Results:  
The color version appears significantly enlarged.

Expected Results:  
The pages should be identical, except of course for the coloration.

NOTE, other programs (such as OOo) do not exhibit this behavior; showing that
Firefox is the likely culprit.  Sometimes, at least, I can save a page and print
from a different program -- but that's a real PITA

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
