After FC17 upgrade - no printing from Firefox


Ever since I upgraded to FC17 I noticed that I can no longer
print web pages from Firefox. What I'm currently forced to do
is to print "to file" as PDF, after that to open the PDF
with "ocular" and to print from there. Printing from other apps,
like image viewer is also OK. So it seems there is something
wring with print-related configuration of the Firefox.

Where should I look for? What configuration files control
the printing function of the Firefox?

TIA for any info,

What have you tried so far.

Did you reinstall the printers to your OS?
Does CUPS show the printer as online?
Is your printer in the printing list in FF?
From where did you upgrade?
x86 or x86_64? (OS and FF)

Could you please supply us with more information, then we can look into the problem more closely, maybe even reproduce.
