I guess GTK's print setup is broken somehow on your system.
Very possibly; this is on Debian Etch which is too "ancient" for the Firefox gurus. I had to install a private copy of gtk+
Every time we try to make people happier with deeper GTK integration,
AIEE. Every time Firefox gets deeper GTK integration, I get unhappier, because formerly-working stuff starts breaking, or formerly-fast stuff gets miserably slow (ie, the grotesque GTK+ file browser which mercifully can be turned off in about:config)
Anyway... even if CUPS is busted, Firefox should at a minimum offer to produce a Postscript file. Printing using "lpr" works fine for me if only I could convince the #*$&&*#$ web browser to write a Postscript file...
