Firefox 25.0a1 (2013-07-20) on Ubuntu 12.04.

Attempting to print this page:
http://www.lewrockwell.com/2006/06/gary-north/whats-your-calling/
brings up the OS print dialog (Ubuntu 12.04). Clicking "Print" brings up a popup progress window and then very quickly an alert with the unhelpful error message:

"An error occurred while printing".

This error doesn't depend on what printer is chosen, or even if the chosen printer is actually online and available - it always appears for this page. Changing the pages to be printed doesn't help. This is normal A4 portrait printing. There is nothing in the Error Console. Printing other pages works OK, and this page prints fine via Chromium.

wfm with Firefox trunk on Windows (maybe due to different adds on the page due to my different country ?)
Hmm. Printing fine today. :-| Could be an ad-related issue, I suppose.
