User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:35.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/35.0 Build ID: 20150125222008 Steps to reproduce: I'm using 64bit Ubuntu 14.04 with Firefox 37.02 Turn off CUPS: sudo service cups stop Add hidden preference for silent print: print.always_print_silent;true Print a page Actual results: No pdf output, second print attempt generates error popup. Print process is hung, and browser needs a hard kill to be relaunched. Expected results: mozilla.pdf in $HOME I discovered this with an addon that generates a pdf silently. The code is similar to this: https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/components/jsdownloads/src/DownloadCore.jsm#2654 I suspect that will fail with CUPS off as well, but I don't know how that code is reached. The code worked fine in Ubuntu 10.04 and Ubuntu 12.04. The failure does not occur with Firefox 28 (which is installed with the base Ubuntu 14.04 system). I have not tried any other dist.
Printing works fine if not silenced, btw. If the user interacts with the gtk print dialog and selects the Print to File driver, it will generate the pdf whether or not cups is enabled.
