Firefox 19 Beta and the Latest Acobat updates Broke PDF Printer

Details at Bugzilla:  (Not Responding Error)


In a netshell, in FF 19 beta I can only now create PDF's if I do it from the Print Preview Pane.


In the previous FF update prior to FF 19, PDF printing was sporatic, BUT I could usually print to PDF if after choosing the fiename to print to, and minimizing Firefox.


It appears that the Dialog "Creating Adobe PDF" is being blocked and hidden.

    Thanks. Strangely enough, this only happens on my laptop, and not my desktop computer. I did report this to Mozilla.

    The problem seems to have ended after the latest Acrobat X and Firefox updates. I had the same problem yesterday, but for some reason today, my prints are going directly to the Acrobat X driver. I will keep my fingers crossed that this issue doesn't recur. I was having problems with Firefox crashing whether or not I used print preview. Your suggestions were helpful, and I appreciate your help with resolving the problem.

    Unfortunately, while the NYT pages cooperated, some of the other pages did not. I will follow your advice and hope they decide to fix the problem. I also have an issue with Adobe not printing web captures from comments loaded from Disqus, but I think it's an issue with how Disqus handles Acrobat as a web page. Grrr...I had hoped that this was done!
