User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9.2.8) Gecko/20100722 Firefox/3.6.8

After upgrading to 3.6.8 the printing dialog (ctrl-p) doesn't include my hp_LaserJet_1160_series (which still exists in about:config). This is not my local printer but is accessible via cups. Printing dialog doesn't give the opportunity to print to file either.

Tried resetting printer with no help (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Problems_printing_web_pages)

Debian 5.0.4, Firefox installed locally as ~/bin/firefox/firefox

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Firefox
2. open any webpage
3. ctrl-p
Actual Results:  
Printing dialog (ctrl-p) shows no printers, and doesn't give the opportunity to print to file either.

Expected Results:  
Possibility to print to file as postscript, or print directly to HP laserjet 1160 via cups.
Version: unspecified → 3.6 Branch
Teemu, still see this in version 8?
