My CUPS printers bleed their settings into both printers when selected through Print Dialog Box
I currently have 2 printers setup through CUPS. One printer has printing options set as 100x230 page size and one as A4.
When the FF printer dialog pops up, the default printer has its settings displayed fine and printing by clicking print produces the correct output to the printer.
If however when I go into the print dialog box from scratch(default is displayed) and select the other printer and check the printer "Page Setup", it has inherited the Paper Size(100x230) from the default printer and not the settings for this now selected printer which should be "A4".
This is quite frustrating as when my users go in and select the correct printer for the print job, they need to make sure that they select the printer, then the page size and then click print. It might not sound like a big deal but they are printing using both options simultaneously throughout the day and one printer is fine, but the other one requires this messing with on every print.
What I think needs to be done, is every time the printer is selected in the dialog box from the list, firefox should request the full printer info from CUPS and completely refresh the printer settings thus overwriting the previous selected printer settings.
After all, these settings are only applicable at the point the user wishes to hit the print button.
Is there anything I'm missing here?
It seems this has always been a problem.
Help me as it's driving me mad :-(
Thanks in advance Regards JASON

Is this on one sole PC that has multiple printers available to it?
Or are you printing to multiple shared printers across a network from multiple PC's?
Also if that is from multiple PC's, do they all run the same operating system?
As all Windows or all Mac or all Linux.
