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:

PDF-XChange Viewer
http://waterfoxproject.org/news/32/15/Need-a-64-Bit-PDF-Reader.html

PDF.js
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pdfjs/

Sumatra PDF
http://xhmikosr.1f0.de/sumatrapdf/

**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.

I just downloaded WF13 and I love it, but every time I launch a new window, it tells me, Do you want to make Waterfox your main browser or something to that effect. How do I fix this? Other than disabling the check it every time you launch the program for main browser status.

Go to options and select the advance tab on top then uncheck 'Always check to see if.... is the default browser on startup'.

Few months ago, xfire and waterfox were conflicting for me. Found here

I've now got a brand new OS installed with my brand new hardware.

Watefox is crashing while xfire is running. Or waterfox crashes when launching xfire. either or.

Just read their FAQ and they don't support any Windows 64bit. Here's what I found:

* Xfire In Game messaging does not work for me at all. Why?
There are a number of factors that allow Xfire to run along with your games and send and receive messages from within the game. Things to check on your system are as follows:

What OS? (Vista, XP, Windows 7, etc...) Is your OS 32bit or 64bit?
Xfire In-Game messaging is currently only supported on Windows Vista, XP and 2000. If you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista or XP, some games will run in 64-bit mode and Xfire will not be able to detect them at all.

So it looks like it's not compatible. If you want to make extra sure, try installing Pale Moon 64bit or HTGuard 64bit. They both offer 64bit versions of Firefox just like Waterfox. If XFire doesn't work with those either then you'll know 100% that it's not compatible. At that point, you can contact the creators of XFire and see if they have any plans to support 64bit.

Just felt like posting that im really loving waterfox, was having a issue with it awhile back but it seemed to be a issue with Firefox and Waterfox messing with each other, uninstalling firefox fixed the issue. Just wanted to point out that Firefox 13 just was released almost a hour ago on mozilla FTP. biggrin.gif so excited to see the release for Waterfox 13 coming soon tongue.gif (optimized of course xD)

Just an update to everyone, since it's the Jubilee weekend I won't be back home until Monday (so really nothing changes tongue.gif). So you'll all be getting WF13 on Monday night thumb.gif

That's great to hear! 

 

Also for anyone who want's a PDF viewer in Waterfox, I'd install any other programs they have and use the pdf.js extension from Mozilla. It's been updated recently and works amazingly :)
