mozilla cannot find printers after 13->13.1

Hey hey!

I just upgraded from 13 to 13.1, everything went smoothly, except for mozilla having issues with the printer list. It's just empty, there isn't even a print to file option there. Removing $HOME/.mozilla did not help. The printer works, as far as I can tell, and is the default: lpr, openoffice, konqueror, gimp all print fine... every program I tried works, except for firefox, thunderbird, and seamonkey. (Printing over LAN works always.)

Edit: I am retarded. Firefox was loading libs from /usr/local/lib. I had a bunch of garbage there... much garbage I needed to make inkscape work. My temp solution was to run export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/lib64" before calling firefox.

I traced it down (I think) to the newer glib I had in /usr/local. I could not build inkscape without it in 13, but apparently I can in 13.1. I removed the local glib and now everything seems to work.
