Now printing headers and footers, didn't do this before update

more options

After using Firefox's suggestion to fix slow browser performance, which it did help, now when I print my work orders the headers and footers print also. Yes I can set these to blank but it will not hold the preset and I am forced to do this each time I print. I updated my HP driver, it did not help

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

You can set the default header and footer for your printer from the Firefox configuration page. To do so, please follow these steps:

  1. Type about:config in the Firefox location bar
  2. Click the I'll be careful button
  3. Type header in the page's search bar

You should see a group of strings that are named:

  • print.printer_[Printer Name].print_headerleft
  • print.printer_[Printer Name].print_headercenter
  • print.printer_[Printer Name].print_headerright

By default the strings will have a value &T for page title, &U for the page's URL, &PT for page counter and &D for print date.

To erase the header, simply change the value of the above strings to nothing. To do the footer, repeat the process with footer typed into the search bar.

Warning: Only change the settings for the printer that you desire to have no header/footer.

Note: If you want to bring the header/footer back, simply add the values back into the strings.

Note: Some software, like Advanced SystemCare with Surfing Protection, can protect files in the Firefox profile folder against changes. If you have such software then check the settings or uninstall this software.

Wesley that was awesome!

I knew there was an answer but no way I would have found that and it was easy to do as your explanation was thorough.

I read that many others have this problem in the forum and tried the answers and you are the one that got it correct.

Thank you very much!
