[K12OSN] Zoomed Printing

I'm having some trouble w/ printing in K12LTSP 5.0 x86_64.

When I change settings to print a selection in Firefox, the page comes 
out, but Firefox locks up, giving the cascading/mirrored windows effect.

When printing full areas or pages, the headers and footers that list the 
page numbers and address fall 95% outside of the printable area on my HP 
LaserJet 5P and 2100 printers, so I can only see the bottom 4-5px of the 
text.. just enough to know something should be there, almost like the 
page is zoomed at 101%. File->Page Setup shows 100% and this occurs 
whether 'Shrink to fit' is checked or not. I've changed the margins from 
.5" all around to .25" all around but this has no effect. Has anyone 
else seen this? Any ideas?

When printing a CUPS test page, it comes out perfectly, showing the 1/4" 
non-printable areas.

I'm not sure whether this behavior is limited to Firefox or not.. I 
don't know of another application that will let me print so close to the 
edge as Firefox. Any ideas? Avenues for testing?
