Printing in Firefox; I cannot change the headers or footers

more options

The page here : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/818850?as=aaq

suggests I can change printing options.

My printing options do not show that. They just say Format For, and Paper size: and Orientation:

How do I temporarily suppress headers and footers when printing in firefox? (Why would I want to uglify my paper with it in the first place when printing passes, maps, return receipts, etc?).

This article (switched to Linux) shows an Options tab in the Print dialog (not the Print Setup dialog) where you can set or clear headers and footers:

Yes, this works, I always print from 'preview' so never used the page. Now I'm no longer sure what Page Setup it supposed to be used for, since my print settings are kept in 'print' and the page options are kept in 'print -> options'. Glad to know I have options now!
