Printer Page Setup settings do not persist between sessions.


(MailNews Core :: Printing, defect)

Windows XP
Not set


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: kevin, Assigned: sspitzer)


User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

If Page Setup is used to change settings from "Shrink to fit" to a scale value 
(like 85%, for instance), the change will be in force for all mail printed 
during that session. However, if Mozilla is exited and restarted, "Shrink to 
fit" is once again the default.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select an email to print.
2. Choose File|Page Setup from the menu.
3. Choose the Format Options tab.
4. Uncheck "Shrink to Fit" and place a value in the scale field.
5. Print the mail.
6. Print other mail -- the same scale is used, settings are still in place.
7. Exit Mozilla.
8. Restart Mozilla Mail, select an email, select File|Page Setup from the menu 
and examine the settings.
Actual Results:  
The settings had reverted to "Shrink to Fit"

Expected Results:  
If the settings persisted during the session, they should simply persist all 
the time, or at the very least the user should be given the option to save the 
settings as default.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
