Description Herald van der Breggen 2015-10-09 11:37:25 EDT
Description of problem:
When printing with Thunderbird, unlike any other application, it always uses US Letter as paper size. If you need A4 paper size, this paper size need to be select manually every time you try to print with Thunderbird.

In the first place, Thunderbird ignores the system default (which is A4 in my case).
In the second place I could not configure Thunderbird to use A4 as default.
In the third place, Thunderbird does not remember the previous paper size used.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Try to print on a system with e.g. European preferences (which includes A4 paper size).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. click on print and find the paper size in the print dialog.

Actual results:
US Letter paper size is selected

Expected results:
System default paper size (e.g. A4) is selected.
