Novell iPrint Client for Windows


Installing an iPrint printer to a Windows 7 workstation with the HP Universal Print Driver version 5.4 using Firefox results in a success printer install.  However, no success window appears and the /ipp page never refreshes back to the iPrint printer install list.  Instead, the /ipp page stays at:
Installing ipp://<serverIPorDNS>/ipp/<PrinterName>..


Install the iPrint Client for Windows version 5.82 or later.
Workaround 1: Use Internet Explorer
Workaround 2: Disable the Firefox plugin-container feature
  1. Open Firefox and type about:config in address bar.
  2. Click I'll be careful, i promise. It will open up a page with lot of preference settings.
  3. Right click on that page and create a New-> Boolean value.
  4. Enter the preference name as "dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.npnipp.dll" and press ok.
  5. Specify value as "false", press ok.
  6. Restart the firefox.
  7. Install the iPrint printer.
