Linux in a Thin Client (diskless workstation) environment: After printing a

This error is frequently reproduceable, but not always.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click file->print while a website is loaded
2. Click OK (page prints)
3. Go to another webpage
4. Click file->print while a website is loaded


Actual Results:  
error will appear. 

Expected Results:  
printing window should appear. 

Standard theme, default user. 
Thin Client environment (LTSP on CentOS4.1), diskless workstation
Closing all instances of firefox for a particular user account will fix the problem.

I can confirm. I see it quite regularly when printing webpages to postscript. I have found no work around other than to kill firefox entirely and restart. 

I run Afterstep although I doubt that has anything to do with it.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!
