FC17+KDE, Firefox 13.0.1 can't print, other apps - print OK


After upgrading FC14+Gnome to FC17+KDE I discovered that
I can't prin from Firefox 13.0.1. An attempt to print from it
(at Google maps) resulted in the printer (HP Deskjet 6940)
light blinking as "not all data received" and continuing
blinking indefinitely. An attempt to print from "google
advanced search" page resulted in no blink at all.

When such things happen, a printer job had been created
and left at "processing" status indefinitely.

But when I print from another app (image viewer), everything
is printed OK.

How can I debug this phenomenon?
Is there some setting I forgot?
What info can I supply that can help debugging it?

TIA for any ideas,
