Description

This is a request for a separate preference for setting printing fonts and 
sizes. I browse with a large screen with high resolution and generally that 
means I like to browse with 20+ point fonts.  But when I print I almost always 
want to print with 12 or 14 point fonts.  When I have 20 pages open in tabs, it 
is a pain to have to wait while mozilla re-renders/loads all of the pages just 
so I can print one of them with a different font size....

Thanks!

rbs, would you say this is layout or printing?  Where would most of the back-end
work for this live?

Let's try Printing (it has no chance it it stays in Preferences).

1)
If the JS side could dump the rules in a print.css, maybe html.css could have:

@media print {
  @import print.css
}
But... it would be a pain fro JS to get the current default values since that
requires to load/parse print.css

2)
So, nsPresContext::GetFontPreferences() could instead lookup a set of
font.print.* values when it is in IsPaginated() mode. And the font.print.*
values would be set from the FE.

Please look at bug 351982 which I think best captures the problem with both this and bug 30896.
