Using Firefox v3.6.2 on a WinXP/SP3 system with 2 printers defined. I opted to print the current web page, selecting the "Print to file" checkbox. When I clicked the Ok button I was shown an "Output file name" dialog box with an edit field into which I could enter the desired filename. I entered "print-to-file" (no quotes) and clicked Ok again. I was given no indication of where the file would be written to. After the operation was complete I had to search for the file. I found file "print-to-file" (no file extension - what is it, PostScript?) within directory "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox". I got away with this because I have admin rights on this system, but data files should not be written to program directories. Would a non-admin user have gotten an error when attempting to write the file? One more thing: if you click cancel in the "Output file name" dialog, you get a dialog box: "An unknown error occurred while printing." Unknown?
I can confirm this on the 9.1a (2011-9-24) build running on Windows 7 Professional. Would this happen to be a system issue?
