currently it appears that header and footers are placed relative to the physical edge of the output page (see preview)

this is not very helpful as often the printed text is only partially printed 

it would be much more useful if the header and footers where relative to the logical page margin (rather than the physical page margin). The logical page margin is defined via the header/footers tab in page setup

this allows users to tweek the page margin for their particular printer.

it also looks better  - almost all printed pages align page numbers and 
chapter titles with the left and right logical page margins

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
headers and footers relative to physical page

Expected Results:  
headers and footer s relative to logical page

PS not sure if I should file a seperate bug but is it  possible to suppress or move offscreen the irritating popup window when switching to preview mode?

MozillaAS v1.7.x is not supported anymore.

Can you reproduce with SeaMonkey v1.1.9 ?
