Moz remembers this when changed to protrait but when closed and restartedd revrts back to landscape. Landscape and portrait printing work just fine - the problem is the default mode changes to landscape for some reason. Only in Moz, no other programs exhibit this behavior.

This has been happening to me too, for some time, still in 1.7b
I am having the same bug as described, exactly, user belives it started after manually selecting Landscape to print a document, now defaults back to landscape apon reboot (In reply to comment #1) > This has been happening to me too, for some time, still in 1.7b
Same with Firefox 1.0 After printing once in Landscape mode, it's now always the default.
As a workaround: Go to about:config Set print.printer_[printer].print_orientation to '0' Restart mozilla The default will now be portrait
My experience is that it *sometimes* defaults to landscape, according to no pattern that I have been able to discern. It has nothing to do with the settings. After I experience something printing from Firefox in landscape, I check my Page Setup and Printer settings and find they are both set to portrait. If I then print the page a second time, it invariably prints correctly in portrait the second time. I did not notice this problem until after I deliberately printed something in landscape. Since then, from time to time, it reverts to landscape even though everything is set for portrait mode. Bill Samuel, email@example.com
I just came across this bug on my father's computer. Still around in 2014! Came across solution in comments from 2009 here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=665493
It's still around in 2017! Amazing. Printed once in Firefox with landscape. Now Firefox ALWAYS defaults to landscape, even though the Printer default is Portrait AND even though about:config reveals that every single setting related to orientation is correct for Portrait.
