hi all,
I recently changed www/firefox for www/linux-firefox . I now realised that my
CUPS printers are not available from File - Print., only 'Postcript/default' is

Cupsd is available and managed fine on localhost:631. I can print via lpr
-Pprintername, openoffice does show the cups printers in its dropdown.

I am not sure how to proceed. Is there an option to enable cups support in
linux-firefox? Am I supposed to rebuild linux-firefox from source (but ... how
from freebsd? :-? )

The system is:

linux-firefox itself tells me this about it:
