using Suse 9.0 I defined a HP Laserjet 8150 foomatic PS recommended as standard.
unfortunately I cannot print from Mozilla that does not allow the printer
specification in the print menu but uses a default  PS/Default that will not
print. Using the "Konquerer Browser" everything is fine.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:  
show the right printer used as standard

Please try whether installing the Xprint server (see
and works - can you print with that ?

If you are using KDE you can also click properties in the print dialog and
change the print command to kprinter.  This will give two print dialogs instead
of one which is diffrent bug.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

drsteele, is this still a problem? Current versions of mozilla have printer
autodetection under CUPS, but I don't know if Suse uses CUPS for printing or
not. LPR printer autodetection is bug 135695, and LP autodetection is bug 306122.
