Hi, wonderful crew I have this annoying issue: when I want to print a page and I open the Print menu from the "hamburger" button, the preview open but on the printer list I can see only the PDF printer, not my default printer or any other printer. Also if I click on the link "Print thru the system printer window" I see only "Print on file" and "Print on LPR" I tried the same on Chomium and there I can see my default printer My system is a Ubuntu desktop 22.04 recently updated from 20.04 LTS Thank for your work

Thanks jonzn4SUSE, you have directed me to the solution of the problem: snap issue! So I found that the snap container must be enabled to comunicate with the printer and the following command does that: sudo snap connect firefox:cups-control :cups-control

It see's my printer. see screenshot Smells like a snap issue. Try Firefox from Mozilla and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release
