[Bug 10910] Re: Default page size for printing is letter

I've just come across this bug myself and can't believe it's been going
on years.

Even though my system is setup to use en_GB and /etc/papersize contains
'a4' firefox still defaults to the non-standard 'letter' paper size.

I found that by sym-linking /etc/paper to /etc/papersize firefox will
then use the correct A4 size when printing. Is the firefox binary
configured to look at the wrong file to determine the default paper
size? Can't this be fixed once and for all in the firefox source so it
instead references /etc/papersize or have the sym-link automatically
created. As for someone that doesn't want these US settings, having to
manually apply these fixes for the quirks is quite irritating not to
mention the time wasted.
