My System

Firefox and default printer settings


I have two printers. An old Lexmark and a not so old HP All in one. In Control panel 'printers and other hardware' I have my Lexmark set as the default printer. This works fine in I.E. However if I want to print something off a web page, Firefox wants to send it to my HP printer. How do I adjusts my settings so that Firefox (3.5.1) sends info to my default Lexmark printer?

Not sure I follow all the info in the link you gave me. I did notice that if I'm on a web page and it has a Print Page icon, and I click on that, I get the option to choose which printer. On the same page, if I use the file menu, then I don't get the option to choose which printer to use, it just goes to the HP printer (not the default Lexmark printer).

Alicia, I use Ctrl+P when I want to print from sites as this gives the option to choose the printer. If I open File > Print I get no choice/chance to select a printer. I don't know whether this is a problem or just a Default operation with Windows so I just do my thing and find Ctrl+P works every time. Cheers Neil.

Replace this line:
user_pref("print.print_printer", "hp psc 1200 series");
with
user_pref("print.print_printer", "Lexmark_3200_Color_Jetprinter");

When done, go File>Save.
Restart Firefox.
