Turning off print headers and footers in Firefox

If you are not using Hatch for printing, you will probably want to configure your browser so that Firefox does not add headers and footers to items printed on certain printers. For example, if you are printing spine labels, you likely will not want Firefox to add a date or URL to the margins of your label.

You can turn off these headers and footers using the following steps:

  1. In the Firefox menu, click Print… to open the print preview screen.
  2. Click the Page Setup… button.
  3. Go to the Margins & Header/Footer tab.
  4. Make sure that all dropdown menus are set to --blank--.

If you only want to turn off those headers and footers for a specific printer, use these steps:

  1. In the Firefox address bar, type about:config.
  2. If a warning appears, click I accept the risk.
  3. Type print_header into this screen’s search box.
  4. Double-click on the relevant print_headerleft, print_headerright, and print_headercenter entries in the grid.
  5. Delete any existing data for that setting and click OK.
  6. Type print_footer into the screen’s search box and repeat these steps for the footer settings.
