    Installed new printer (Epson T40W) and had no trouble printing from Internet Explorer, Chrome, Notepad and Photoshop. However, Firefox 3.6.6 returns "unknown error" when printing webpages and GMail. My OS is Win XP SP3. Any suggestions would be most welcome. AV and other program updates are Ok.

    Firefox stores a variety of printer settings and usually this is not an issue, but when it is, you sometimes can resolve the problem by resetting your default printer.

    In the Firefox location bar, type (or paste) about:config and press Enter.
    If you are prompted to be careful, click the button.
    In the Filter box, type print and wait for Firefox to filter the list.
    Right-click print.print_printer and choose Reset to clear the default printer.

    Then return to a test page and see whether you can print. Any luck?
