I want to be able to disable the print confirmation box on my install of Firefox (I'm running 1.5.0.8, but I could install any version).  I don't see the option in about: config, so is there a way to do it?

Thanks in advance.

I found the information below that should do it for you.

Remove the print dialog by adding following lines to your user.js:
user_pref("print.always_print_silent",true);
user_pref("print.show_print_progress",false);

user.js

This is the main preferences file for Firefox and is located in you profile folder. The file does not exist by default, so you need to create it before you can start adding your preferences.

Windows users: If you know how to create a file, just skip this section. Before you can create the file, you must make sure that you can see the file type extensions in Windows. Start Explorer (just click on the My Computer icon on your desktop) and select Tools > Folder Options.... Click the View tab and uncheck the Hide extensions for known file types option. Now, go to your profile folder and select File > New > Text Document. The default name New Text Document.txt should be displayed. Change the name to user.js (click Yes on the file type warning that appears).

Regards,

Rob
