It still shows up in the interface, which is where that error message
originates, but CUPS refuses to allow me to change anything, despite my
logging in as root under the administrative label.  

This also happens if I (as root) initiate Firefox and the resulting
localhost:631 out of a terminal window.

The problem appears to be a permissions thing, which I hardly
understand being root at that point.  I get a message about not having
permission to access those pages.

Sorry I didn't include that in the original post.
