Each time I print in fedora (HP Laserjet MFP M377dw) via LAN, the printer first prints out an additional double-side page at the beginning with the following text:

Secret Media Limits: 0x17x0.17 to 8.33x10.83 inches Job ID: ... ... Printed at: (date)

Why is this page printed and how to fix it?

This is probably a banner page.

To configure, run Print Settings (/usr/bin/system-config-printer). Hit Unlock and enter your password when requested,

Select the printer, and then select Printer -> Properties -> Policies. Here you can change the Banner setting to None, and hit Apply and OK.

/usr/bin/system-config-printer is provided by the package system-config-printer.
