What happens is Mozilla saves the preferences it started up with.
So what you need to do is close mozilla down, then go into


Add something like this to the entries:
pref("print.print_command", "lpr ${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME:+'-P'}${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME}");
pref("print.printer_list", "lp lp1 lp2 lp3 lp4 lp5 lp6 lp7"); // list of printers, seperarated by spaces

Then the next time you start mozilla you will get a list of printers.
You leave the postscript part in there, because the postscript output will
get sent to the ghostscript filter for each printer listed.
