I cannot seem to figure out how to remove the Headers/Footers from printed Firefox pages. Could someone please show me the way?

(I'm using Firefox 3.5.3.)

On the menu bar go to File → Print.

In the dialog that comes up, on the bottom you should be able to select to not print those, like I did below.

+1 for posting the appropriate OS X screenshot :) – Molly7244 Sep 21 '09 at 2:26
Unfortunately, this just removes the text, it still takes up the same area of whitespace - and still ruins those terrible web pages that have custom div pagination. – CoolAJ86 Jan 19 '12 at 17:50

Just click File > Page Setup, then the second tab is "Margins & Header/Footer". You can change all the settings there to --blank--.

On a Mac, in the File → Page Setup you get a totally different dialog. – Henri Watson Sep 20 '09 at 20:52
Didn't see the OSX tag! – William Hilsum Sep 20 '09 at 21:05
