Printing XPS document

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I can't print an XPS document in Firefox. I can print it in IE8. Anyone else have this problem and if not what do I have to do to correct it? I'm using FireFox 3.5.6

Have you tried to download the file to your PC with Firefox and then open it with IE? I know this isn't a solution but it's a workaround until someone comes along with better advice.

Also, give THIS SITE a try. You may find some additional information or resources that are helpful.

So after doing some further investigation online I see that Firefox is simply incapable of reading XPS docs. I also do not see any available plugins that will assist you so it appears that you are SOL for now. IE or the XPS Reader are your best options in my opinion. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

What I did was just clicked IE view (IE view add on) and printed from there. I guess they'll come along one day and find a fix for this. Thank you for all your help and Have A Great Day.

Right, you could also just download the file and use the XPS printer to print it.

I can only get XPS documents to read using XPS viewer which is the MS pictures viewer, I believe.

What's espcially annoying is that no copy and pasting is allowed.

Have tried using other programs like Notepad, Works word, etc. to open XPS but they won't. Any suggestions?

Well XPS is what was meant to be like a pdf alternative and as with pdf files, they're not really edit-able. No native applications in windows will edit an xps file as far as I know, of course I know very little, but a third party app like NIXPS will allow you to edit those files. That app can be found here: NiXPS I've not tested this app yet, so let us know how it works out.
