    I have two printers. One is a laser and the other is an hp 1210 all in one. I cannot print to the 1210 from any of my web browsers. Safari, Firefox, etc. I can print - no problem - to the Brother laser, but when I select print and choose the 1210 it crashes immediately. I have upgraded all the drivers, etc. from HP and still no help. Can anyone help me with this. Since my laser only prints in black n white, I can't print in color right now from the net. Crazy!!

    One thing that you have not stated is whether or not the AIO prints from other apps like Word or TextEdit.

    Also, how are your printers connected to your Mac? If your HP AIO is not connected directly to your Mac, then you will not be able to use the HP-provided driver. You will have to use CUPS.

    The printer works great in every other way. It prints, copies, and scans on que. It is hooked via USB to my G5 tower. The only thing it doesn't want to do is print when I am online. As soon as I hit print and select the 1200 printer it immediately crashes either Safari or Firefox.
