2.Print the website (File->Print->Print to File in Linux, have not tried on real printer)
3.The "Printing..." dialogue with the progress bar pops up.
4.Before the printing completes quickly close the "http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/Forum/resources.php?c=182&cid=44&year=2009" tab.
Actual Results:  
Firefox crashes. The print job is not completed.

Expected Results:  
Firefox should not crash. Printing should complete fully.
xuanj, do you crash using v3.6 or v3.5?
If you do, a stacktrace is needed. see https://developer.mozilla.org/En/How_to_get_a_stacktrace_for_a_bug_report

I'm using Firefix 3.6.3 on Windows XP SP 3 with a Brother printer and I can replicate the crash by:

1. Going to www.google.com.au in one tab, and www.news.com.au in another
2. Print www.news.com.au
3. Click ok in the print dialog
4. Close the tab as the print progress bar is coming up
5. Firefox crashes (report sent about 15 minutes ago)

I can also replicate a hang by:

1. Going to www.google.com.au in one tab, and en.wikipedia.org in another
2. Print en.wikipedia.org
3. Click ok in the print dialog
4. Close the tab before the print progress bar comes up
5. The progress bar comes up, but hangs. Firefox is usable, but the progress bar never progresses and must be manually closed.

You may require a large web page or slow printer driver for this one.
reporter's issue is WFM
Tim, get your crash id and search to see if the crash signature matches an existing bug
