Removal and reinstatement of headers and footers when printing web pages

    When I print a web page(s) (whether 'live' or from a saved HTML file) I
    have always got a header (consisting of the name of the 'article' plus
    'Page x of y') and a footer consisting of the full filename (including
    path) and date of printing.

    I have discovered that this is caused by the entries in Print, Page
    Setup, Header field and Footer fields. The entries are '&w&bPage &p of
    &P' and '&u&b&d' respectively. Removing them prevents any header and
    footer from being added to the print.

    However, the problem is that the entries stay deleted - even after a
    reboot. To reinstate them, they have to be added manually (which is
    rather tedious). Is there an easy way of toggling between the two? Also,
    where (and what) are the 'rules' for this function?

    Copy & paste the fields to a text document before you delete them from the
    print options menu.

    Yes, I can do that of course, but still a bit tedious.

    What I was thinking of was a way of having the default condition (each
    time you print) as having the header and footer, but to remove the text
    from the fields (with a quick swipe to highlight and a press of the
    'delete' key) if you don't.
