Hi, I just bought & installed a Canon Pixma MP470 inkjet (nice machine BTW). I can print from my harddrive fine, but when at a webmail site via Firefox, I get an error message, "Printer not responding." If I copy the text at the webmail site to notepad, I can print it, NP.However, if I access the same site via IE, I can print it out directly and quickly. I normally never use Internet Explorer & I don't really want to start.
Am I doing something wrong? I have tried turning off all my security apps ( which is extreme IMHO), but it does not help. Is there a work-around for this?? The Canon site is no help at all, & the Firefox site doesn't seem to address this issue either. I am using an Acer AST180 desktop running Windows MCE.

First of all just to confirm is the printer selected in the Firefox print dialog the canon?

Not sure what you mean by this. When I try to print, Ff sees the printer but it just stops as above.
The Canon is the only printer that has been connected to the PC.

I ment that if you click file and click print does the printer name show in the name box.
