I see this all the time. Sometimes it's fine, other times it will
just dump time after time. Very annoying. This happens with systems
running cups and those running the base lpd, and on the FreeBSD 4.10
and 5.3 RELEASEs.
This was brought up here just after 1.0 was released, but applicable
to the pre-release. It was suggested that 1.0 release fixed it, so I
upgraded the port right away. First time I tried to print it blew up.
Apparently it wasn't fixed.
Other than this one annoying problem, I have to say Firefox is still
the best darn browser I've ever used. Of course, I still keep Mozilla
installed so I can print . . .
