It's important to know the primary cause of this sudden change in behaviour:
1) Did you upgrade the printer drivers?
2) Did you upgrade any of the two browsers?
After that, I would check what Chad said and then see if the printer is
correctly configured (as far as paper width and length goes) and if the
browser (whichever) is picking up the printer configurations correctly. If
not, restart the browser and try again (in Firefox you might need to reset
Also, from what you described, Chrome and Safari are apprently printing
automatically instead of the default browser behaviour of asking for
printing confirmation, this might be worth checking out because I've only
implemented this automatic behaviour in Firefox following the documentation
Are you able to provide your printer model?
