Hi Mike, Any thoughts on this? Is printer information something that can be removed from "Important Modified Preferences" in about:support?

Speaking as somebody who's triaged / dealt with printing related bugs in the past year for e10s stuff, I don't recall a single instance where the printing information has ever proven particularly useful.
I know bobowen has also done some printing work recently - more in the backend. Has that section of about:support ever proven useful to you, bobowen?
The printer prefs came in with the initial list of whitelisted prefs (bug 554174). I'd agree that they don't seem super-useful. It's probably more useful to check with someone that deals with SUMO support requests, but I'd generally expect that printing-related stuff is of such a narrow focus that this can just be removed.
