HP USB printers can be addressed by 2 ways:
* the default CUPS usb:/ transport
* the hplip hp:/ transport
With the usb:/ transport, printing will work, but anything beyond that won't. 
(In particular, hp-toolbox doesn't list the printer if it's configured with a 
usb:/ URI.) So in system-config-printer, look at the device URI and make sure 
it's set to a hp:/ transport, if it's not, use the Change... button, the hp:/ 
URI should be listed as one of the options there.

I hope this helps. With all the work you are doing in the Fedora Project to 
help us users, I'd be glad if I was once of help to you. :-)
