Build Identifier: 

By mistake I printed a long document instead of the selection I wanted to print. So I aborted the print as soon as I realized the mistake.
Now I cannot print any more (Popup says: "Druckerfehler: Nicht verfübar" (Printer Error: Not available)), and even worse, the page cannot be refreshed (Popup says: "Warnung: Das Dokument kann nicht verändert werden, während es gedruckt wird oder die Druckvorschau angezeigt wird." (Warning: Document cannot be modified while it's printed or print preview is displayed))

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Print a longer document (with many images)
2. Abort printing quickly
3. Try the print only a selection of the document, or try to refresh it
Actual Results:  
You cannot print the page any more, nor can you refresh it

Expected Results:  
Printing should work, refreshing should work.
There should be a way to override the refresh blocking.

Found in Firefox 3.5.2 on Windows/XP SP3. May be present on older versions as well.

I'm currently using Seamonkey 2.0.10 (Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv: Gecko/20101026 SUSE/2.0.10-0.7.1 SeaMonkey/2.0.10). I tried a test when I had disabled the CUPS printer (to save paper): A lengthy document was aborted during print, and after that the page could be refreshed without problem. So the problem might be fixed.
