Firefox does not see Canon printer
I am running Unix Ubuntu 22.04 with Firefox 104.0.01 (64 bit). My Canon LBP 6230DW works fine in my word processor and in Chrome, but it does not show up in the Printer destination field when I am in Firefox. The only print option is to "Save as PDF." How do I get the Canon to be a print destination in Firefox?

Can you post a screenshot of what your system is showing for printers and what you see in Firefox. see screenshot

Also try downloading Firefox from Mozilla, run firefox-bin from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release
Did you try Firefox from Mozilla?
Can you try the reset option on this page.
I tried downloading Firefox from Mozilla, but got an error. I suppose I can try that again and try to figure out a way to resolve the error. I did the reset option twice, without any change. I did notice that my word processor uses the wired connection, although there is also the wireless connection. I just figured out how to transmit the screen prints; they are attached.
