Disable print dialog in Mozilla

Does anyone know if it is possible to disable the print dialog in Mozilla (linux)?

When i print a webpage from mozilla i always get a print dialog asking which printer to use and how many pages it should print. Is there a way to disable this screen?

I want the webpage to be printed without any questions asked...

You could do it with a singned (and accepted) Java-plugin. Not a minor task though, so lets hope someone knows a better way.

To the best of my knowledge there is no way to do this.

It is a security feature, Imagine how marketeers would just love to spend your paper and ink by printing hardcopy adverts out of a page you visit.

I can imagine that, but in my situation, I am using mozilla as part of a kiosk-system. And I don't want people to see this screen. It is possible with IE (using vbscript), so my guess is Mozilla can do it too...

I have found 2 files, printdialog.xul and printdialog.js in the mozilla toolkit.jar, maybe it is possible to change them? Does anyone have any experience maybe with these files?
