Howdy, I first discovered this with Seamonkey. I then tested this with Firefox and got the same results. When I go to File and select Print, the print dialog window pops up for just a second and then the web browser crashes. Both seem to use the same print software. I tried a different version of Seamonkey but it does the same. I also tested a fresh profile of Seamonkey as well, Firefox also. I don't print from Firefox much. Also, if I select Print Preview from the menu, it opens normally but as soon as I click print, crash.
I then tried a newer unstable version of cups just in case it would help. After that, I opened Kwrite and tried to print. Its print dialog opened and waited for me to hit print. LOo did the same. However, both of those use a different software or at least they look very different to print with. Usually going back a version or up a version fixes things like this. Given that this didn't work in this case, I'm not sure where to go. Two versions of Seamonkey and Firefox both crash. A newer version of cups and it still crashes. I did a search on BGO and didn't find anything except for a fixed version of Chrome which I don't have on here. I suspect it uses different software to print anyway. So no help there. Forums had a thread that was from 2010. It mentioned a USE flag which cups doesn't even have anymore. No solution on the forums. One other thing that may or may not be related. I did a emerge -e world a week or so ago. Before that, I could print fine. The reason I did that was because I switched to a new gcc and I just wanted to be sure everything was stable. I went from gcc-8 to gcc-9. It may not have been needed but it was cold here and I didn't mind the extra heat. Plus, it sometimes fixes other quirks I may not even see. Here is the info for Seamonkey, Firefox and cups. root@fireball / # emerge -p seamonkey firefox cups These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies... done!

I usually follow things I've read on this list. If someone thinks changing one will help, I'm willing to test it. I can always use my test profile that is blank anyway. That way there will be no data loss even in a worst case scenario. This is the gcc-config -l output. root@fireball / # gcc-config -l  x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-8.3.0  x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-9.2.0 * root@fireball / # If needed, I could also revert back to gcc-8. It takes a while but it is doable as a last resort. I'm not sure if the printing is done within Seamonkey itself or if Seamonkey and Firefox use some common external print software. I'd think the later since both behave the same way. I'm just not sure. Any ideas or thoughts?? Thanks. Dale :-) :-)
