The Mozilla maintainer went insane and removed its ability to generate
Postscript... I imagine the Firefox maintainer has done the same although I
don't have it installed so I can't check.

Removing functionality in order to make it harder to do such a simple thing
as print... that's usually something you attribute to a wholly different
group of people.

So now you have to have yet another daemon running just on the off chance
you might want to print something.  Thanks, no.  I do not own real
Postscript printers just so that I can screw things up with xprt.
