For some reason I have not been able to print from Firefox on Ubuntu.

It goes to the print queue but remains there - the Progress shows "Stopped"

I can print from word or any other program.

Firefox and Ubuntu are up to date.

I have tried resetting the printer settings and also reset the browser but no luck.

This sounds related to

Does the printer show up in the http://localhost:631/printers/ and if so can you get in un-"Stopped" from there?

Or maybe the "Printers" section of the system settings has something that could help?

It is showing as idle in http://localhost:631/printers.

When I click onto the printer it shows the last job state as "stopped Filter failed"
