Description Luciano Rocha 2005-01-11 07:07:18 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/125.5.5 (KHTML, 
like Gecko) Safari/125.12

Description of problem:
Printing works in other applications via a cups discovered printer. But, when that printer 
isn't configured as the default, mozilla and firefox segfaults when running the Print or 
Print Preview menu commands.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mozilla
2. File -> Print Preview
- or -
1. firefox
2. File -> Print Preview

Actual Results:  the application segfaults

Expected Results:  a print or print preview window should had appeared, or some error 

Additional info:

The following makes me think the problem is that there's no default printer:
$ lpq
lpq: error - no default destination available.
$ lpstat -p
printer Oki is idle.  enabled since Jan 01 00:00
$ mozilla
... File -> Print Preview
$ lpoptions -d Oki
$ lpq
Oki is ready
no entries
$ mozilla
... File -> Print Preview
<the window appears>

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Reporter, could you confirm please, that this bug still could be reproduced with
the updated release of the supported version of Fedora (FC5, FC6, or F7)?

If yes, please, reopen this bug with additional information how it is possible
to reproduce this bug.

In meantime, I have to close this bug as CANTFIX, because it is reported against
not longer supported distribution.

Thanks in advance.
