Using Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS. Fresh install of O/S and I imported the TB folder from previous computer. Using TB 68.4.1

Now, when I try to print, the Print Dialogue is delayed (20 seconds) in coming up. During the delay, TB darkens and is unresponsive. This issue ONLY happens with TB. I suspect an old setting(s) from previous install. How can I "reset" this and/or fix it? :-k

TIA

The standard solution for printing problems is to reset all of the print.* settings in the config editor (right click on a setting and chose reset from the context menu), exit and restart Thunderbird. It will add new printer settings for your current printer.

Okay, did that AND edited /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf and commented out the [server] section line:

# enable-dbus=no

Then

sudo service avahi-daemon stop
sudo service avahi-deamon start

Works as expected now...
