are you requesting to have your settings saved? if that is the case, then maybe this is a DUP of bug 83750
>are you requesting to have your settings saved? >if that is the case, then maybe this is a DUP of bug 83750 No...i am asking for the combo box (is that what it is called ?) in the print dialog to become context sensitive. It has 3 options: * All pages * Pages * Selection Now when i select some text in the browser and click on the print button, it should automagically be set to "Selection" And when i just press print button without selecting text, it should stay at "All pages"
I disagree. Often times I select text but do not want to print the selection. If later, I want to print the document, I shouldn't be surprised by seeing just a paragraph or two. OTOH, a new bug that would get Mozilla to remember the previous selection would be one that I would support.

I agree with Andrew in comment 3 - the setting in 'Print range' (that's what it is on Win32, dunno about other platforms) should be remembered from whatever you did last time, where possible[*]. This remembered value should be a per-window setting, not apply to all windows (because of the possibility of remembering an old value for too long and doing the wrong thing), and should certainly not be remembered between Mozilla sessions. [*] This would not be possible in the following cases: 1) Where you selected 'selection' last time but don't have a selection this time. 2) You selected a page range last time that isn't valid for the current document. In these cases, the setting should default back to 'All pages'. Marking WONTFIX for the reason Andrew gave. However, please file a new bug for the above, add me to the CC, and I'll confirm it.
