I also have a Brother MFC-240C printer and although it prints a test page OK, it usually does not print from an application such as Firefox or Thunderbird. Some posts here:<http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=264036> suggest that the problem is an extra byte being added to the printer output, meaning that /usr/local/Brother/Printer/mfc240c/lpd/filtermfc240c cannot determine the correct file type. A proposed fix was to modify the script in filtermfc240c to strip out the last byte, but that has not worked on my up to date Fedora 15 system.

Printing worked fine with this printer in Fedora 12, 13 and 14.
