Why do you say things like the above? I conclude that you are saying the
the Live CD and the installed F7 use the same system-config-printer.
The fact that they don't work the same is strange. If you don't care to
have someone investigate why this different behavior that is ok by me.
My information certainly contradicts your assertion. 
After 49 years in computer technology I know if 2 programs act
differently they are not really the same program or they are running in
different environments that make their behavior appear different.
