After making the switch, I have two concerns that have been bugging me...

    The "print selection" option is grayed out for me. I know that there is an app that you can download, but it only works on Safari and I prefer to use Firefox.

    The other annoying thing is that duplex printing isn't supported by Mac OSX. I emailed Canon about it and this is what they informed me.

    Where can I suggest that Macs incorporate these things into their OSX?

    Is it OS X or is it the Canon drivers? I'm all but certain that I did duplex printing on a printer at school with Tiger...I mean I could be wrong, but I think I did.

    I have a Samsung printer that duplexes, and for the longest time, it was either all or nothing - I couldn't switch between the two.

    *Finally* Samsung updated their drivers so that I could actually turn duplexing on or off through the print dialog (like you're supposed to be able to.)

    Works great now :) If yours doesn't duplex, it's probably Canon's drivers...

    Ok cool thank you for the comments. It probably is the Canon drivers... I'll ask my friends if they have the same issue.

    I have always been able to do duplex and non-duplex printing flawlessly to the HP LaserJet here at work. It even gives me the binding style options (ie, print the reverse side with the same orientation like a book, or inverted like a flip-pad)

    Definitely need to direct your feedback on that point at Canon.
