Strangely enough, when I printed to a pdf file and then printed that 
file it gave me three 45 second timeout messages as above, but then 
eventually printed.  But when I then tried to print the same page 
directly it actually did print after a two-minute delay, without any 
timeout messages!  So my problem is not always reproducible.

Printing worked fine in 10.10.  I will experiment with different web 
pages to see if the issue might be page dependent.
