Is CUPS running?
Does your distro disable the web interface?
Could the running cupsd process be in a non-functional state?
Given the issues you describe I suspect the latter to be more likely.

Argh, no. That runs firefox as root, sure. It then tries to connect to
the TCP/IP address 127.0.0.1 on port 631 just like normal. The only
difference is that if something goes wrong, it can nuke your system.
Don't run a browser as root. Ever.

Does the same error/warning appear when you print other jobs?
