I edit the print.print_headerleft so that it reads "Bacon Sebastien" On Windows Vista it's OK (same built version oh TB). On Mac OS X, nothing is printed in the corner. I tried with another string, quoted string, double-quoted string, I even replaced text in the prefs.js, but nothing is written. I tried mixed &T&D or &T - &D : doesn't work as well. it seems like, on Mac OSX, only single values &U,&D,&T and &PT are accepted. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. change the print.print_headerleft from "&T" to "this is a test" 2. print a mail Actual Results: nothing is printed on the top left corner Expected Results: "this is a test" should be printed
I just have the same problem with ThunderBird 3 Beta 1

Confirming based on tests done by a user on support.mozilla.com (chat u50m491072820). (Headers and footers are ignored when changed to a non-default string)
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
This issue persists with both Firefox 3.6.21 and 6.0.2 on Mac OSX. In addition to nothing being printed where a custom header/footer was defined, the config value is actually clobbered as soon as the print dialog is brought up. Not sure if this makes the fix any easier, but I would suggest looking first to see if it is the print dialog that is changing the config values as that may be the only issue.
