I'm trying to install a Ricoh MP 9003 printer through the CUPS web interface, localhost:631/admin. My department's policy is that we need a username, password, and "lock code" to print to this printer, and the PDF driver from OpenPrinting supports all of these features:

CUPS printer options

When I click "Job Log" to set these options, however, nothing happens. The URL in the address bar updates, but the page itself doesn't change, so I can't set the options. This happens regardless of what browser I use. The options screen should look like this (borrowed from this link, since mine doesn't work):

job log options page

Is this a permissions issue? How do I get these options to work with this printer? My standard, non-root user ma is a member of the lpadmin, printadmin, and lp groups. The /etc/cups/cupsd.conf looks like this:

#
