I am attempting to set up my default printing options by editing the about:config but firefox seems to ignore them when I call the print command
I am looking to have default behavior to just save the page to my disk as a pdf which I can do manually but for some reason but setting about:config to default to this behavior is not working
I altered the about:config file to the following I set print_printer to "Print to File" print.print_to_filename was set to "/home/username/filename" print.print_to_file was also set to true
I reset firefox after making the changes and when I attempt to print a web page it still selects my physical printer, the location and file name are ok once I select "Print to File" I just want it to actually use that as the default printing device not my office printer.
To make extra certain the settings were correct I reset the about:config values to default restarted firefox set print.save_print_settings to true restarted firefox printed a page selecting the values I wanted, printing the page to a pdf file. went back to about:config noted the values were what I wanted and set print.save_print_settings back to false, restarted firefox And it is still selecting my office printer.
If it matters the printer is an HP, would rather not uninstall it.
