Hi all,

I need help with the default printing options in Firefox. It has a very
annoying "feature" when trying to print: it insists on providing me with
preselected headers and footers.

I believe the things you're looking for are in about:config.  Look
for "print.printer_(printer_name).(attribute).  The attributes are:

    print_footercenter
    print_footerleft
    print_footerright
    print_headercenter
    print_headerleft
    print_headerright


Thanks, Rick.

Those are the ones I mucked with. No cigar though. Any changes made there cause the status to change temporarily from default to user_defined. After printing the current document they revert back to default.

It appears that there is no way to modify the default behavior and that the only way to get rid of that idiocy is to compile the browser oneself? IMO it makes a lot more sense from a usability perspective to click once to enable something desired than to have to click seven times to disable something undesired.

I always felt that Mozilla/Firefox was the standard to which others should aspire but I fear that I may be seeing signs of pig lipstick...

:m)
