By the way, can you tell me why PRINTING from firefox or waterfox is very slow and resource consuming compared to printing from IE or Chrome ?
I faced this issue many times...
My system configuration:
AMD Phenom II x4 955B 3.2 GHz, ASUS M5A, 8 GB RAM, Waterfox 12, Chrome19, IE9.
Printers used: PDF-XChange 4.0 and Canon iR 4570.
Printing a webpage of 500 A4 pages with images and text
in IE took just 15 seconds on my system with the PDF printer
in Chrome took 30 seconds
in Waterfox/firefox took 3 minutes (Failed thrice after rendering 180 pages at 52%, saying "printer error")
I am having to go to Chrome everytime I want to PRINT something...
The only thing that caught my eye is it seems you're printing PDF files using 32bit PDF-XChange. In IE and Chrome, PDF files are more than likely rendered within the browser since both browsers are 32bit and PDF-XChange is also 32bit. In Waterfox, you have to use 64bit PDF software. Otherwise, the PDF file will start outside of Waterfox instead of whithin causing a delay. I would recommend using the following 64bit PDF programs with Waterfox:
**I just noticed PDF-XChange has both 32 and 64bit combined into one installer now. Before, they were separate. If you installed an older PDF-XChange before installing Waterfox, then uninstall and reinstall PDF-XChange so the 64bit version gets installed to use with Waterfox.
