How do I change the default printer in Thunderbird please?
Recently replaced broken Canon MP480 printer with a later model Canon MG5660 printer. Although the XP OS now sees it as the new default printer, Thunderbird does not. I click print and it goes to the MP480 unless I pay attention and change the printer selected each time. Invariably I wait for the print whist the print dialogue waits for me and I waste time. It must be simple but I can't find the option to change the default printer. Frustrating! Can someone please help.

use the Config Editor to change the rest the hidden preference printer.print to default.
Yep! Sure enough. I simply changed the print.printer value to "default" and bang. The default printer now appears in the print dialogue box. All fixed. Thanks heaps. Phiptoe
