What are your print settings in your browser?

The print stylesheets - what the browser uses to format pages for printing - 
depend on which theme is being used, but generally they just remove all the 
navigation and "furniture" that you usually see around the page content and 
only preserve the page text, so you should get a fairly plain printout by 
default, but the paper size and orientation are things your browser will be 
in control of, not the stylesheet.

I recommend checking your print settings and verifying that the paper size is 
A4, that the output is scaled to 100%, and that you have one page per side. 
Firefox is a bit confusing in this respect as you have the print preview 
settings and then the actual printer settings. I recommend tuning the preview 
to look more or less correct and then verifying that, when choosing to 
actually print, you aren't putting more than one page per side or anything 
like that.
