Usually Firefox, sometimes Safari. As for e-mails we print directly from the Apple screen.
The e-mails (the majority of our printing) is accessed by clicking the stamp, not by going through Firefox.
PS: I like your style (level of questions). We're not very computer-literate as you can already tell.
Version 10.6.8. I don't know if this is relevant but last year we had the "language" updated on our iMac. I don't really know what that means but our system has been operating better since.
defaults write com.apple.Preview PVImagePrintingScaleMode 0
defaults write com.apple.Preview PVImagePrintingAutoRotate 0
Once thats done, hit enter.
Once thats done.. Close apple mail.. Then open apple mail.
Now find an email you want to print, go into the print preview.. ( does the email now appear to take up the whole page? )
if so, then print it.. And lets see what we get!

Sorry, you lost me already at "finder, spotlight, search tool" at top right of screen. The only box I see there is the Google box. Do I need to clear Firefox and/ or the e-mail screens? Any other identification?
If and when I find it, I'm not certain that I can "copy and paste".
I apologize for being so naive...it's embarrassing.
Your instructions are clear but my wife and I both tried to highlight and drag the instruction lines into the "terminal box" but cannot complete that task. We've been at it for 30 mins. Whenever we click onto the highlighted lines the terminal box disappears and it will not allow us to type the lines directly into the box nor can we drag the box over the lines. Sorry but we're stuck here.
OK, we managed to type the 2 lines into the terminal box, followed the steps you instructed and printed an e-mail. The problem still exists. By the way, the print is so large on the e-mail, it has no choice but spill over. Can an adjustment there solve the problem?
I tried twice more after your last message and, yes, I hit enter and closed/re-opened the e-mail, but we still have the problem with the printing. I could not see any error message or confirmation. What next?
I was away from the computer for awhile: sorry for the wait. Yes, you can hook in. What do you need me to do?
I have completed the download. Have at it please. Pierre
