Description: Firefox print function does not see printers anymore. This bug has been reported in the forum ( and seems related to the split of gtk3 package. Indeed installing gtk3-print-backends solves the problem. Maybe gtk3-print-backends should be introduced as a dependency for firefox.

Additional info:
* package version(s): firefox 49.0.1-1
* Archlinux 32 bits + xfce

Steps to reproduce: Try to print a web page with Firefox: the installed printers do not appear in the dialog box. The only available option is to print in a file.
Installing gtk3-print-backends and retarting firefox solves the problem.
This task depends upon
