Not possible.
All controls of the browser are out of scope for scripting because scripts are executed in a SandBox context not allowing any access out of the sand box.

Zvonko's absolutely right.

Besides, anyone can simply install a print-to-pdf driver anyways.  This actually works better than the default "print to file" checkbox as it completely retains the original layout while the "print to file" option doesn't.
