User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:26.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/26.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131205075310

Steps to reproduce:

1. With Windows account1(admin), refuse all the rights for account2(normal user of Windows) to use the printer1. On the other hand, we enable all the rights to use printer2.
2. Log in with account2, we open IE, the disabled printer is in grey, and the account2 user cannot choose this printer1 to print, we can't click on the button print. With Office, a pop-up windows telling the user that he doesn't has the right to print.
3. With Firefox, we can choose the printer1, we can click on the print button. And it prints.

Actual results:

With Firefox, we can choose the printer1, we can click on the print button. But in fact will print with printer2 automatically, without any alert messages, the paper comes out from printer2. As if it is printed by printer1.

Expected results:

should hide the printer (invisible is perfect) or grey it, or a pop-up Windows telling the user that he doesn't have the right to print with this printer. And it should not print with another printer. (Because the printing fee configured is different!!)
