When the Print... dialogue comes up in Firefox, it shows that it will print to PaperPort. My system default printer is a Lexmark network printer. I checked my computer's Devices and Printers, and the Lexmark is checked as the default. Firefox is the only application that prints to PaperPort as a default and only since a recent update to Firefox 29.0.1. I would like the Lexmark to be the default printer for Firefox, as it is for all my other applications. It is annoying to have to manually select the correct printer each time I want to print.

Firefox will default to the last used printer. If that isn't the case for you, the reset that ideato mentioned should solve your problem with it always using PaperPort.

AFAIK, there is no preference for defaulting to the System Default. It's been like that since Netscape wrote the printer used in Firefox and SeaMonkey back in 1994-1995, IIRC.
