Tried Konqueror

I tried last night to use the web browser nothing happened I couldn't get to a page.
I don't know what happened or what I did last night but when I booted up this morning printerdrake started up and now the printer is working. I was able, after your post to obtain the cups page using Firefox

Thank you for your response
