Any chance that printer is listed twice in about:config ?? The second version would have a (2) for the prefs for the second listing.

If so, all those (2) prefs need to be reset, and you need to make sure they don't reappear after you restart Firefox. --- BTW, the data you put in the Troubleshooting Information box isn't the information that this forums software asked for, the correct information is found in Help > Troubleshooting Information..., then you hit the Copy all to clipboard and then paste that info into the box for that information.

That information would have answered my question about duplicate listings; that feature was developed for this forum and would have shown all your printer data in your original posting.

I have only (1) Brother 1440 printer listed under "Printers"

also below is the information from "Troubleshooting Information" Does this help? If not, what do you need me to do to get you the information that you need?

Many thanks, P

I have the same issue with Windows XP SP3. The printer is attached to a Windows 2000 server.

What I am doing to work around for now is printing to PDFCreator. Then I print from PDFCreator to the HL-1440.
