Windows 7: IE9, IE8 and Firefox 3.6 all crash the moment a print option is used.

IE9, IE8 and Firefox 3.6 all crash the moment a print option is used.

Hi all,

My first report of a crash so if I miss anything useful out, sorry and I will try and provide further.

Suddenly, firefox 3.6.13 has closed down the moment I select print, print preview or page setup. Running Windows 7 Professional with all current updates provided in 32bit.

I run Fineprint as my default printer driver but the problem occurs with other default printer drivers selected. Printing from Word 2007, Adobe Acrobat reader 9 or notepad works fine.

Running Firefox in safe mode still causes the problem.

Interestingly, IE 8.0.7600.16385 and IE9.0.8080.16413 also crashes, even with add-ons disabled.

I have uninstalled flash and acrobat reader as they were recently updated but no effect.

System restore is limited to a standard system point after a load of windows updates on the 10-02-11 were installed and no obvious changes were made since that point was made on the 13th

Any help, gratefully received. G

Was it just me or is IE faster than Firefox at the moment???
Firefox has had a few updates recently but now, as I write this post, I am using Internet Explorer 8 which feels faster than Firefox 3.6.8 at this point and I don't know why. I am more of a Firefox user but, I just feel that IE 8 is doing smoother and faster on the browsing. Those of you...
