    Dymo Labelwriter with Firefox Ubuntu Printing Postage Hangs

    OS: Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit
    Printer: Dymo Labelwriter 400
    Task: Print 99019 postage label from my ebay
    Result: Print job goes into queue but does not print; job hangs.

    Observation: Labelwriter prints test page; job hanging is peculiar to Firefox
    Observation: Using Chrome browser job sent to printer does print, not correctly formatted, but that's another issue.

    I have configured my settings in Paypal for the Labelwriter 330 Turbo and installed Sun Java per Paypal instructions. The Labelwriter appears to be installed correctly because I can print labels to PDF then print from PDF to the Labelwriter, with the formatting issue.

    I'm looking for suggestions to help me figure out why labels will not print from Firefox yet will print from Chrome.

    Even more importantly, I'd like to figure out how to get the labels to print properly formatted for the 400 whether I have to print to PDF then to the Labelwriter or use Chrome. Hopefully, this can be resolved before I run out of labels.

    Meanwhile, I'll go back to printing half sheet labels until I can figure this out. gLabels appears to work with the printer too.

    Ideas on where to start?

    Re: Dymo Labelwriter with Firefox Ubuntu Printing Postage Hangs

    Now have correct Sun (Oracle) Java
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_11-b21)

    Attempting to print from ebay seller loads the label in the viewer window but when I press the Print button nothing happens. If I reboot to Windows 7 same thing with Firefox but the label prints with IE whatever version I'm using. IE didn't start printing until I installed Adobe Reader.

    Any ideas?

    Re: Dymo Labelwriter with Firefox Ubuntu Printing Postage Hangs

    Ubuntu 12.04
    Firefox 18.0.1

    I just printed a label from the ebay seller applet but it took about four minutes to process through the print queue.

    If I can solve this problem, I'm golden. Any help?
