When you use JavaScript's window.print() to print a Web page in IE, by default, it prompts IE's printer dialog box. To avoid this, use the following JavaScript code:

if (navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer")
{
var PrintCommand = '<object ID="PrintCommandObject" WIDTH=0 HEIGHT=0
CLASSID="CLSID:8856F961-340A-11D0-A96B-00C04FD705A2"></object>';
document.body.insertAdjacentHTML('beforeEnd', PrintCommand);
PrintCommandObject.ExecWB(6, -1); PrintCommandObject.outerHTML = "";
}
else {
window.print();
}

It called silent printing and you can do it on several browsers but it isn't that simple..

On Fire Fox -

Type about:config at Firefox’s location bar and hit Enter.

Right click at anywhere on the page and select New > Boolean

Enter the preference name as print.always_print_silent and click OK.
