    Is Firefox 'print" Function Broken?

    Linux Question:
    I been using Firefox 3.0.9 for a while and noticed no problems printing. I updated the entire system including installation of Firefox 3.0.10. I have the latest copy of CUPS and even downloaded the printer driver off the HP site.

    Able to print from every other application including thunderbird and Open Office but not Firefox. The "print" function never gets highlighted. Even attempted to setup the printer through firefox but firefox prohibits it from connecting to the specified port because of security reasons. Other web browsers work as expected.

    Anybody else effected? Found the following site with suggestions but looking for other ideas to check for.

    -start konqueror and go to "localhost:631"

    -start the configuration with the button "Manage Server"

    -then lock in as root with your root password

    -start "Edit Configuration File"

    -press the button "Use Default Configuration File"

    - save the settings and restart cups

    Why that screwed with Firefox beats the heck out of me.
