Re: How can I remove the header e footer from printing view?

If you want to remove the header or footer permanently (there's no user interface like in Page Setup on Windows to easily change either) in Firefox on Linux, you can clear the various prefs Values to get rid of both them.

Type about:config in the URL bar and hit Enter. If you see the warning, you can confirm that you want to access that page.

Filter = header Right-click each of those prefs and select Modify, then backspace or use Delete to wipe the characters - then click OK.

Repeat the same for footer.

It was always there and it never struck me to look in the config!!

Thanks a lot for your tip. I nearly went to install Windows only because I could not get rid of those headers/footers.

Many thanks!!
