Reporter, does this still happen with Firefox 4.0.1 or later in a fresh profile? http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles
Severity: enhancement → normal
Version: unspecified → 3.6 Branch
possibly would be fixed by bug 133787?
Component: General → Print Preview
Product: Firefox → Core
QA Contact: general → printing
Version: 3.6 Branch → 1.9.2 Branch
The issue is still observed in Firefox 4.0.1 ! Probably the print feature could be enhanced to work separately without interrupting browsing.
