problem with gs package in testing? (printing problems in Mozilla)

I am using Mozilla 1.6-5 and also Firefox 0.8-2 on my Debian Sarge (2.4.24-1-686) system. I am having printing problems when I print from Mozilla.

In Print dialog if I choose to print to a file, I have the following choices:

No matter which ps choice I use, if I try to magnify any area from the resulting ps file (by selecting the area using the mouse and trying to magnify it 64 times), my computer gets really busy. Top shows gs is using most of cpu. The magnified window never shows the magnified ps content but ends in Ghostscript Error. The error window though has nothing in it.

Is somebody else experiencing this behavior? Or any tips on how to solve this?

Here is what other related stuff I have (if I have missed something, just let me know and I will specify that too):
