Adding printer using CUPS web interface remotely

Is anyone else using Hardy setting up the CUPS web interface for
remote admin work?

I've done so, and lately I'm finding if I try and set up a printer
remotely, (e.g. add a printer to a machine I'm not in front of) it
hangs at the define a ppd stage.  This morning, I'm using a Mac to do
the setup, but IIRC it happened with a Debian machine as well.
Weirdly - if I use Safari instead of Firefox 3 it works fine...

Can someone else confirm the issue before I go posting a bug report?
Otherwise I'll need to do a bunch more twiddling to be confortable the
problem isn't in my setup somewhere.
