Default firefox 3.5.6 doesn't see my CUPS printers

Hi,

Firefox (www-client/firefox-bin-3.5.6) doesn't see my CUPS printers
anymore.
It just shows "Any Printer" and lateron "Print to LPR"

What am I missing?

Many thanks for a hint,
Helmut.

My cups printers are specified in /etc/cups/printers.conf. Does that
file have appropriate printer info in it?

Restart cupsd because it silently died for no apparent reason?

Yes, it contains several printers.
And these can be used by other software without problems.

Yes, it contains several printers.
And these can be used by other software without problems.


Ah, that's an important piece of information you left out before.

Firefox is looking at localhost:631 I assume? What happens if you use
different browser, like epiphany, or konqeror, or even lynx?

epiphany and konqeror both see all printers like previous versions of
Firefox.

Certainly sounds like there is something broken in firefox. BTW, 3.5.6
is already obsolete, 3.5.7 was just released. Maybe an update would fix
the problem. If using the 'bin' version of 3.5.7 still doesn't work, I
would suggest using the non-bin version instead.
