Hey guys, I've got a problem with my HP printer. It prints stuff from the computer just fine, but if you have a page you want to print from the internet, like my bank statement or my insurance invoice, it only prints a butt load of pages with just one or two lines of crazy symbols on each page. I have to cancel the print job just to make it stop. Anybody have any ideas as to why it's doing this and how to fix it. Thanks.

I'm using Firefox, the newest version. I don't know why that would be the case because I just changed out an older printer for a new one and I didn't change anything else. Just the printers. The other printer did just fine with the internet, but this one, not so much. I think it could be something software wise, but I'm not sure, just guessing. I have reinstalled the printer software twice with no change. When I installed the printer software it did say something about a missing shared DDL or DLL file, I don't remember now.
