    The Suspects:

    mac pro
    OS X 10.4.11
    Firefox 2.0.0.13
    wikipedia.org
    Brother HL-5240

    I bought a Brother HL-5240 laser printer a couple months ago and I'm really happy with it. A couple minutes ago I went to print some stuff from apple.com, then I went to wikipedia.org to print out some pages there. Immediately after clicking "Print" in the print dialog box, I got everyone's favorite spinning cursor.

    Huh... weird. I've never had a problem with this printer. I wait a little while, but Firefox is completely frozen up, which is ok since I accidentally printed the normal version and not the "printable version." I force quit and reopen. I try it again, this time with the "printable version" with the same result, spinning cursor, everything frozen. Force quit, reopen.

    Now I decide that I'm going to try to save it as a PDF from the print dialog. Again, same result! Everything is frozen!

    Time for Safari, it prints everything just fine.

    Anyone else run into this utterly strange problem?
