print dialog box loads slow from mozilla or seamonkey
Posted on 2010-11-17
I have used mozilla for a browser and seamonkey for its email for sometime without problems. Several weeks ago, the printer dialog box started taking 18 seconds to load for any printing within either one of these programs, whether to print out a website or email.
Long ago I deleted internet explorer so I can't run a comparison. Just now, I did load the browser, Opera and tried to print a web page from it. The print dialog box loaded instantly. It also loads immediately for all other applications like Office, etc. I have 23 printers showing on the dialog box, some are networked, some not and some are not physical printers, like paperport, or ScanSoft PDF Create. It's interesting that when I select print with Opera it only shows 3 printers, however it allows me to browse select add others if I want. What do you think is causing the delay in printing from those two browsers (mozilla and seamonkey)?
