"FirewallD" is the mechanism for configuring the firewall.  Without that
mechanism running, the firewall cannot be modified by that program
(GNOME System Settings, 'printers' plugin).  It doesn't mean the
firewall is not running, just that it cannot be altered by the program.

The ability to configure network printers using the GNOME System
Settings program is fairly basic at the moment.  You may have more luck
with system-config-printer (Applications -> Other -> Printing).
