Cups / Mozilla printing issues.

A few weeks ago, there was a troublesome version of ghostscript-gnu
in the ports, which corrupted my output as you describe (I have
an HP laser printer). I think it was version 7.07_1; I had to downgrade
to 7.05 for getting rid of the problem.

The latest port has solved the problem. So if you are running the
troublesome version, try upgrading your ports collection and
your ghostscript-gnu.
