Once bug 127627 is fixed, zoom and landscape/portrait switching will no longer
work on Unix.  Printing from print preview already does not work (bug 126802).

Please disable the UI for this functionality on Unix for 0.9.9.  The current
state of affairs will look pretty unprofessional and, imo, will lead to slews of
bug reports like "When I click the arrow the number changes but the page does
not zoom!"

Samir, this is going to cause a flood of bug reports. Are you going to be able
to get to this in thenext couple of days for 0.9.9?
Asa, I plan on coming up with a patch today.
r=law
sr=jag 

Changed to pass string "true" instead of boolean true in setAttribute() per
jag.
Changed to use appVersion instead of the customizable userAgent per law.

Hide the print button, scaling widgets, and orientation widgets on Unices.

AFAIK we have a prefs which should control whether a printer device can have
more than one instance... I can't remember the name... rods ?

We should use that instead of |navigator.appVersion.indexOf("X11")| ...
Found it... it's (AFAIK) |pref("print.whileInPrintPreview", false);| we should
rely on... then it's easy to enable this later again...

Um... Please read comment 9 again.
Boris,
I did.  I was pressed for time and had r, sr, and a when I checked in.  If
someone would like to fix this to use the pref that's fine by me.  I don't think
it is critical for the release of 0.9.9 personally.  
Boris, please verify...thanks..

Attached patch Patch for 2002-03-06-08-trunk (obsolete) — Splinter Review
The new patch now does the correct thing - it looks at the
"print.whileInPrintPreview" prefs item to decide whether we want the GUI or
not.
Attachment #71966 - Attachment is obsolete: true
You can now enable/disable the GUI via setting
|user_pref("print.whileInPrintPreview", true);| in prefs.js

Patch for 2002-03-06-08-trunk

Please wrap the getBoolPref call in try/catch (and assume canPrint == true if
it fails).

Also |if(!canPrint)| is fine, no need to test == false.

sr=attinasi - do you really want to redeclare canPrint in the try block though?
