This has been a vexing problem for about six months now. I have one year old MacBook Pro, 2 GB of RAM, Huge 160 GB drive (installed myself with the help of Maccast tips), but cannot solve this problem.
I connect to a wireless network at my home, I can print from Word for Mac easily, no problems.
At the office, whether connected wirelessly or wired, I attempt in Word for Mac (or Firefox now that I think of it) to print and the beach ball appears for about 10 seconds and the program crashes.
I have searched to see if anyone else is having this problem and I cannot really find anything on it. Any of you mac geniuses have a clue on this? I love my Mac, won't ever go back to Windows (I switched about 14 months ago), but this is really annoying at this point, all printing is disabled while I am at work.
