File >> Page Setup >> Margins & Header/Footer
Set margins (top, bottom, left, right) to about 12mm

Is the problem with all sites? If not then please provide url's.
Have you tried another printer set as the Windows default printer?
Can you provide a screenshot of the preview and setup pages.

Thanks. Did you try changing printer? Anyway, try this:

- Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter - list of preferences will appear.
- Find the preference print.print_printer
- Right-click that preference and select Reset (You may need to reset all the print.printer preferences for a particular printer, if resetting this one master preference doesn't solve the problem)
- Restart Orca and see if the problem is resolved.

I forgot to ask, do you have any Mozilla addons enabled? If so, disable them to see if they are causing the issue.

I see that you are still using Orca v1.2 build 5 - can you try wit build 6?

I also see that you are using Window 7. Have you tried running as administrator? Does the logged in user have a printer install? And have permissions yo use it?

What config options do you have that begin with print.print_ (including the underscore)? Use the filter box at the top of about:config to show results.
