Where is the Print Setup setting in Firefox so top and bottom margins print on the page (now too high and too low)?

When using Firefox—and wanting to print the article, Click File, Print Preview and you'll see the HEADER and FOOTER jammed against the TOP and BOTTOM of the page. Typically these headers and footers drop off the page when printed. Using "Page Setup", I can adjust the top and bottom MARGINS, but that DOES NOT adjust where the HEADER AND FOOTER ARE PLACED! Frustrating.

SO, how do I adjust the placement of the HEADER and FOOTER? Their placement is NOT an issue on Google Chrome, so this appears to be browser related.

Thanks

This is hidden and a little obscure... Firefox stores properties for each of your printers, including the "unwriteable" margin distance and the "edge" distance. Changing either of these seems to have the same effect in my limited testing.

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste edge and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the print.printer_BrandX.print_edge_top preference and enter your desired distance in hundreds of an inch. For example:

10 => 1/10 inch 25 => 1/4 inch

In a different tab, use print preview to test that there is now that amount of space between the top edge of the paper and the page title.

(4) Repeat for the print.printer_BrandX.print_edge_bottom, print.printer_BrandX.print_edge_left , and print.printer_BrandX.print_edge_right preferences.

If the edge preferences do not exist, or to hedge your bets, you can set the print.printer_BrandX.print_unwriteable_margin_bottom, print.printer_BrandX.print_unwriteable_margin_left , print.printer_BrandX.print_unwriteable_margin_right, and print.printer_BrandX.print_unwriteable_margin_top preferences similarly.

Success?

"...enter your desired distance in hundreds of an inch."

Assuming he's using US paper sizes - Letter - Legal.

World "A" sizes of paper are spec'd in metric measurements - my guess would be millimeters.
