well, in your own words 'leap to conclusions do we?', seems to include
you in that 'we'. i do not find that i made reference to which post.

therefore, for me to include firefox, it would have been from a later
post that you made and in which you failed to mention evolution.

if version of firefox that i am currently using;
   Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:
   Gecko/2008071611 Red Hat/3.0.1-1.el5 Firefox/3.0.1
had time stamps in history log, i would be able to give you an exact
time that you could relate to your presumption.

tho i will admit that while looking back thru history, i did miss one of
the hits related to suse. so i did err in not noting it. or what ever
was page relating to it, did not seem relevant. maybe it mentioned
evolution and was there before i put firefox in search.

as for ubuntu, i can not say. for sure if it was among hits, i did not
look at it.

actually, it was brought on by your evasiveness in not mentioning what
all you had tried to print with.

reveals it did not happen with ubuntu client and fedora server, but did
with fedora client and fedora server.

which, all in all, does cause me to believe as i have all along, that it
is related to cups and how it is handling authorization and a reason of
why i suggested adding 'user' to 'lp' group. which may have been a
temporary 'cure', 'hack', 'solution' or what ever one cares to call it.
what ever it is called, if it worked, it would be a way to get printing
done until source is debugged and corrected. along with, possiply, another
pointer to where problem is in source.
