Print Option: temporarily no header/footer
Is there an Add-on that adds an option to temporarily disable printing of header/footer (as in Opera and Chrome by checking or unchecking the header/footer option)?
If you only sometimes want to print without header/footer you have to go through several steps to manually disable and later again to enable header/footer (Print > Page Setup: Margins & Header/Footer and set all fields to blank and later back to their previous values). Obviously, this is not really user friendly.

That would require to have two sets of print prefs for each of the two situations and swap between them.
A possibility would be to do that with an extension like Custom Buttons or PrefBar that allows to create your own toolbar buttons.
Thanks. I had a look at both of them. Both require you to code such a button yourself. I could not find any ready code sample that I could use (anyway I would not have the necessary knowledge to adapt the code). PrefBar offers preconfigured buttons but none solves my problem. The "Printing" button gives you just a quicker way to access Page Setup (instead of going via Firefox menu). You still have to manually disable and later again to enable header/footer. Even if you clone and rename the "Printing" button, your changes to header/footer always affect Page Setup of your clone and the original "Printing" button. Unfortunately, a solution is still pending.
