My printer prints small squares instead of letters

  mikedotorg 14:31 27 May 2005

Printer works fine with office & explorer but has suddenly refused to print characters from Thunderbird & Firefox and AA route planner. It will print graphics but replaces letters with small boxes. Have tried re installing the printer, the problem software items and even Windows98. Suspect maybe a damaged DLL but which one?
