Just got a used Dell Optiplex GX520 computer running Windows XP with a Canon printer. I can print from MS Word or MS Xcel fine, but keep getting a Crash message when using Firefox. Firefox was installed when I got the computer. I tried the "about:config" solution and there is no entry for "print_printer". Then I uninstalled Firefox, restarted the computer and re-installed Firefox. Tried printing and got the same problem.

Any suggestions on how to proceed.

Was the crash from Firefox? Or something else?

Using your mouse, mark the most resent 7 - 10 crash reports, and copy them. Now go to the reply box below and paste them in.

If you can't get Firefox to open, you will have to do this the hard way. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/mozillacrashreporter Open the file browser / explorer on your computer. Note: You may have to enable Show Hidden Folders / Files. Enter this in the address bar;
