Build: 09-17 Branch build on Mac 9.1-US 09-14 Branch build on Mac9.1-Japanese Steps to reproduce: 1. Launch brower. 2. File | Print, or Click the "Printer" icon next to "Search" button. Actual result: Nothing happens. Expect result: A print dialog will pops-up.
Does this work on N6.1?
I just re-installed my Mac to Mac9.1 recently. I was using Mac9.0 before which has no problem. So there is a little wrong with my previous description: I have no printer set up, that why it doesn't work. However, even I haven't had a printer set up with my machine, I should get a warning/error message dialog tells me about that, not just do nothing instead. IE will has a message dialog pops-up. Change the summary.
Summary: "Print" doesn't work on Mac 9.1 → When there is no printer set up on a Mac9.1 system, "Print" will do nothing
Marking nsbranch-. It should fly a dialog as Yuying Long suggests but this is not sufficient to mark it nsbranch+.
Keywords: nsbranch → nsbranch-
`The document could not be printed, because no printer is selected. Use the Chooser to select a printer, and try again.'
The problem here is: if I don't have printer seleted, I should get an error message tells me about that, not just doing nothing.
Is there any way to return |NS_ERROR_GFX_PRINTER_NO_PRINTER_AVAILABLE| to the underlying code ? If |YES| - then the new print error dialog would catch this issue and notify the user... :-)
Changed summary to correct description.
Summary: When there is no printer set up on a Mac9.1 system, "Print" will do nothing → When there is noWhen a printer is not choosen... an error dialog needs to be brought up
Summary was bogus. mpt: can you please explain why we should A. show an error dialog if you do file>print when you have no default printer instead of B. show printer setup or C. disable file>print
Summary: When there is noWhen a printer is not choosen... an error dialog needs to be brought up → show an error when printing without a default printer
The expected behavior is to do something. Just pop up an error and say "sorry, can't print," or "sorry, can't print, but would you like to install a printer?" Either one.
A. Because that's what every other program does. B. Because there aren't any printers to set up. C. Because (if you have a printer connected, but not installed etc) it wouldn't be at all obvious why the item was disabled.
I was testing bug 167459 (printing without a selected printer), and I saw a dialog with the words "show error when no printer selected" or something similar. However, due to bug 167459, I crashed immediately. Maybe this is already solved ? I haven't found back the error-text in the source-code, so I don't know where it's coming from. Build 2002122708 on Mac OS 9.2.2.

Is it still a bug ? (sorry, all my PCs have printers)

timeless asked me to test this on Mac OS X. So I erased all my printers. In build 2003061008 on Mac OS X (1.5 trunk) if I do File->Print or use the Toolbar Print Button I get the Print dialog with the legend "No Printer Selected" for the current Printer. This would seem to be working fine on OS X. Needs testing on other platforms.
Today's windows build gives "An unknown error occurred while printing." which is no good. Same on SeaMonkey (browser and mail) and Thunderbird and Firefox. Expected on windows: "Before you can perform printer-related tasks such as page setup or printing a document, you need to install a printer. Do you want to install a printer now?" and launch the print setup wizard if the user selects OK.

yeah when no printer is available on the system there's a error.
shouldn't we fix this for 0.10 or latest for 1.0? --> blocking
out of time for aviary 1.0 and bumping up against the UI freeze for localization. reniminate in the next few days if a patch appears.
shutting down for UI/localization freeze very soon. This bug has no patch. If a patch appears in the next few days there still is chance.
Flags: blocking-aviary1.0? → blocking-aviary1.0-

Were you suggesting a check for printers at installation time. Powlin, Peter, can you state what products you're commenting about and whether only Firefox addressed the issue (bug 227283)?

Marking WFM. Since Bug 227283 was fixed on 2004-08-25 the message is now "There was a problem printing. No printer could be found."
