User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0
Build ID: 20140923175406

Steps to reproduce:

1. In Windows, add a local TCP/IP printer named "Library Black Printer."

2. In Windows, add a local TCP/IP printer named "CWE-149 Color Printer."

3. in Windows, set "Library Black Printer" as the default.

4. Open Firefox.

5. Click the "Open menu" button in the upper-right corner.

6. Click the "Print" button.

7. Click the "Print..." button in the upper-left.


Actual results:

In the "Print" dialog box that appeared, "CWE-149 Color Printer" is the first printer to appear in the printer list, despite it not being the Windows default printer.


Expected results:

In the "Print" dialog box that appeared, "Library Black Printer" should have been the first printer to appear in the printer list, above all others, because it is the Windows default printer.

Was this done in a Firefox profile where printing has previously been done?  (i.e. not a new profile)

Because I'm pretty sure that Firefox still does not honor changing of default printer in Windows unless it has been reset in Firefox.
