Like I said in an earlier reply, mozilla seems to be a WYSIWYG printer,
what ever is on the screen, is the font size that will get printed.

The next time you try to print, edit the preferences first, and change the
fonts, and minimum font size to a lower value. It's clunky, but it works for
me. It's probably a bug in mozilla, which we will have to wait to be fixed.
