Do you have any other printer drivers installed? you should be able to choose from any drivers via a pull-down menu?  I just tried this on windows/ firefox 3.5.6 - I have no other drivers installed and my only option was an .XPS file.

* No response from reporter since 2009-12-18.
* Reported with a very old version of Firefox that's no longer supported.
* Vague and confusing steps to reproduce. Saving an XPS file is exactly what printing to XPS is.
* I've filed bug 1026409 about being unable to print to XPS.
