Sorry, Firefox doesn't have a preference for that setting.

The Configuration Editor, more commonly referred to as about:config is where those setting are stored; and available for editing for experienced users. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/about-config-editor-firefox

If you use print.print in the Search Bar at the top of the about:config page you will see the available related preferences.

The only thing close might be print.print_via_parent, but my search for that pref in MDN came up empty. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/ With the change from XML to HTML within Firefox, and changes made to the MDN website my search skills have bottomed out when it comes to accessing information from MDN.

Here's a Google search for that "print.print_via_parent" preference, which is turned on by default. https://www.google.com/search?q=print.print_via_parent&sourceid=mozilla-search&start=0&start=0&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8num=100 Perhaps you'll find an answer from one of those search returns.
