Firefox printing with no headers and footers

First it was Netscape, then Chromium, on to Chrome and now (back) to Firefox, but the paperless office is still a pipe dream for me and most people.

Printing from Firefox can be annoying. I don’t like seeing the title, URL, current time, etc in the headers and footers so I would change those settings each time. Since I don’t print that often I’d always forget to find out how to save those settings, until today.

Turns out it’s quite easy, but it does require some tinkering with internal Firefox settings!

In Firefox, type about:config.

  1. Search for print.print and list of entries will appear.
  2. Look for:
    • print.print_headercenter
    • print.print_headerleft
    • print.print_headerright
    • print.print_footercenter
    • print.print_footerleft
    • print.print_footerright
  3. Double click on each one and remove the text in the (value) box.

This will remove the header and footer information when you print.

Next time I tried to print a page the headers and footers were both blank!
