I solved it by following the suggestios contained in the error message.
Click File/Print.../Properties..., and change the Print Command from:



  gs -q -sDEVICE=pswrite -sOutputFile=- -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -dMozConvertedToLevel2=true - | lpr ${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME:+'-P'}${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME}

But, what is root cause of this problem? Shall we make the Print Command
the default in the Firefox package?
