Public bug reported:

Downloaded and installed latest Firefox update a few minutes ago.
Restarted Firefox. I had to change print size from 15 to 16 to get the
same displayed size as before. The windows of applets are now truncated
on the right. In other words, the applet window is now too narrow to fit
the whole content of what the applet wants to display. Nothing crashes.
You simply can't see the right-most part of what the applet is

All was working fine immediately before the update. All still works fine
in Seamonkey and Opera.

You can see an example of an affected applet at

There is still the long-standing and irritating problem with Firefox
that it always defaults to printing on American paper size despite all
my long attempts to get it to default to standard international A4. I do
not use Firefox when I need to print stuff off the web.
