This looks like you're using xprint to print from Firefox. Don't use it, 
xprint is buggy as hell. The printer should be listed twice, once as "QMS 
1660@:64" as you said, and then again as "PostScript/QMS 1660". Try printing 
from the "PostScript/..."-entry. If this works, find all installed packages 
that have xprint in their names and deinstall them.

This way, you'll lose some settings in Firefox's print setup (e.g. duplex 
print if it's available at all), but at least it should work with the 
printer's default settings.
