Found and fixed this problem for 7-final.

Here's what you do to fix it:

(As root)
# mv /usr/bin/lpr /usr/bin/lpr.old
# ln -s /usr/local/bin/lpr /usr/bin/lpr

Then make sure in the CUPS interface you have the printer set to 
default, and you should be able to print from FireFox / Opera just fine 
now :)
