Yeah inability to print can be a major downer.

I don't know for a fact that it is the mozilla ps module.  But for you,
there are a few things you can try beffore you get mad at firefox and
such.  First, make sure all firefox processes are stopped(a reboot might
be good to ensure this if you have the time).  Then try moving your
.mozilla directory out of the way.  At this point you should be able to
start firefox and hopefully everything should start working just fine. 

If it does not, then I think you need to file a bug in the Ubuntu
bugzilla about that.  I can't reproduce the crash even using the default
Ubuntu debs.  So when you file your bug include as much detail as
possible.  Make sure you include what printer you have, how its
connected to your computer.  If you want to ensure that your bug report
is attended to quickly you might want to read one of the many bug
reporting howtos(google is your friend to find these).
