Hi Venkat,

Possible source of problem is mismatched paper_data(pd=119) if you are 
working under Windows, or mismatched paper_name(pn=na_legal_rotated) if 
you are working under Linux.
To check how Firefox address your paper size check this:
- manually print from Firefox something URL on this paper ('US Legal 
Rotated')
- after successful print open about:config and check following preferences:
print.printer_HP_Officejet_7300.print_paper_data
or
print.printer_HP_Officejet_7300.print_paper_name
You must use there for paper_data(pd=?) and paper_name(pn=?)

I hope that this will help you.

Regards,

Dimitar Angelov
