I do it with Active X:

      var x;
      function SetPrintProperties()
         {
            x = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
            x.SendKeys("(%f)u");   // alt-f u=setup
            x.SendKeys("(%h)");    // header
            x.SendKeys("{BS}");    // None
            x.SendKeys("(%f)");    // Footer
            x.SendKeys("{BS}");   // None
            x.SendKeys("~");       // Enter O.K.
        }

MK:

After it prints, open the print properties window and see if the header and footer are actually set to nothing...  AFAIK the &u is the URL indicator and if it's gone from the footer I would have NO clue.

MK:

Your security settings for Active-X are not "loose" enough to allow it to execute.

If you insert

alert("Begin Active-X");

before the .... new ActiveXObject...

and

alert("End Active-X");

before the window.print();

you will see what is not getting executed....

Go to Tools | Internet Options | Security | Trusted Sites | Custom

and set all IP's that you need and set all the Active-X entries in Custom to ENABLE

I don't know exactly which ones are the ones that allow it to work, but I know if you have the default settings, you get exactly what you see.... nothing... I just went through it last week..
