What print command are you using in mozilla?  How about specifying an
argument to that?  Not sure if it would work, since mozilla also has a
paper size option, which may or may not override your intentions.

I also just pulled up about:config and found a few options which may be
of interest:

print.print.printer_PostScript/default.print_paper_width
print.print.printer_PostScript/default.print_paper_height
print.print.printer_PostScript/default.print_paper_name

scrolling down a bit further, I found the default paper sizes under
print.tmp.printerfeatures.Postscript/default.paper .  So you
could add an entry for tabloid by adding a new name, width, height, etc.
and incrementing the "count" option.

good times,
Vineet
