    For those of you running Firefox, see if you can reproduce this bug.

    1) Disable all the headers/footers when printing.
    2) Print a page using the print icon on the bar...no header/footer.
    3) Print a page from a site that automatically prints it via a "print" button in the HTML or from an onload() javascript...one specific incident is the payment receipt page from a Paypal transaction. You'll see the default header/footer.

    Apparently it ignores your page settings if the page prints itself.

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

    Windows XP Version 5.1 2600.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158 : Service Pack 2)

    Well, yeah....but it is still worth a lot more than you paid for it, isn't it?;a ;f

    FWIW, I have gone back to using an older version of Mozilla. For whatever reason, the version of Ff I installed on XP Pro worked for a month or so, but then decided to stop starting.

    The shortcuts for it all quit working, and even ripping it and installing a newly-downloaded copy didn't help.

    So, no Firefox for me. But no IE, either!!;)

    i've been using Firefox for a couple of months now and seems to be working just great for me. i avoid all of the fancy "extensions'' and "themes", etc., and just use it as a basic browser.

    much better than IE by far!!!

    i haven't had any problems printing from any page, including HTML using the "print" button. but then i haven't disabled any footers or headers either FWIW. just my 2 cents before taxes. ;f

    That doesn't help me or Firefox in the least.
