Hi there..
Not actually a support-issue, just to inform other users.
Firefox on Win7 home premium (64) here with a few exstensions (NoScript adblock Fireftp & Web Developer)
HP did an update, after a reboot some of the items in the dropdown-menu was "empty" and there was "many holes"..
Had to start firefox in safe-mode disable all extensions, turned them on, one by one. When HP Smart Web printing was turned on, menu became a mess again.

So folks, if menu is filled with many blank menu-items, try to disable "HP Smart Web"..

One of the high-end users here gave me this script last year to do what looks to be what that HP stuff does... I also don't use it much but when I have... it has never failed.

I created a bookmark and placed this code that the person gave me into it's location section....
Code: Select all
javascript:(function(){if(window['ppw']&&ppw['bookmarklet']){ppw.bookmarklet.toggle();}else{window._pwyl_home='http://www.printwhatyoulike.com/';window._pwyl_pro_id=null;window._pwyl_bmkl=document.createElement('script');window._pwyl_bmkl.setAttribute('type','text/javascript');window._pwyl_bmkl.setAttribute('src',window._pwyl_home+'static/compressed/pwyl_bookmarklet_10.js');window._pwyl_bmkl.setAttribute('pwyl','true');document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(window._pwyl_bmkl);}})();

I placed that bookmark onto my Bookmark Tools bar and then changed it's icon to a printer using the extension Favicon Picker.

Ah, Aardvark++ for printing. This is the same as the bookmarklet hosted on http://www.printwhatyoulike.com. Thank you for turning me on to it. It tried it out, and like you, I doubt I'll use it much, but I'm keeping it handy.

You're welcome... I got it from one of our high-quality supporters on one of these threads.

I recently installed an update of HP's Smart Web Printing and though none of us intend to use it much, it may come in handy one day and as such it should work. Therefore, a browser looking like this isn't nice: http://s3.amazonaws.com/scrnshots.com/s ... b_printpng.

I popped into the HP support forum and it seems that there's quite a fuss over the compatibility issue between FF and HP SWP so I guess we'll just have to wait. For now, I disabled this feature in FF.
