printer properties are not saved completely without printing This was observed with Firefox 22.214.171.124. I choose Print - Properties and changed the settings there (for Postscript/default) and left via the OK button. The only settings which are saved when I leave the Print dialog now with Cancel are the print.printer_PostScript/default.print_edge_* prefs but not the paper size and print command prefs.
That's copied from another bug about this issue. ------- Comment #38 from firstname.lastname@example.org 2006-05-10 11:38 PDT ------- Yes, but it would be worse if the settings were saved when you click "Cancel"; users expect their actions (setting print settings) to be ignored when clicking cancel. Several alternatives to solving this problem exist in various applications. One possibility is to add an "Apply" or "Save settings" button, another is to add a "Printer settings..." item to the File menu, which would bring up an identical dialog, but with the "Print" button replaced with a "Save" button.
There is no way to say you only want a printout for the current page, i.e. DON'T save the setting beyond this one printout. It should return to the system default settings or at least have that option without having to guess and kill half a forest or manually edit prefs.js
