What happens on IE and Chrome? Does the dialog just stay up? I think there might be a timeout on how long Flash will wait for the PrintDialog. Either way, it shouldn’t crash. Make sure you are on the latest public release of the player and file a bug.
IE and Chrome wait for the user to print or cancel.
I realized after I posted that it isn’t the version of Firefox that is the problem it is Firefox along with the latest Flash Player. This issue was first reported during testing in August.
I found this in another thread:
This issue seems to be related to hang protection that was added to Firefox. To disable follow these steps:
1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press.
2. The about:config page should appear. In the Filter box, type dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs
3. Double click the setting and change the number to -1 to disable hang protection.
I set it to -1 and the problem went away. This isn't really a valid solution because we have hundreds of thousands of users and we can't tell them how to configure their browsers. I am waiting on someone internally to test with the regular Flash player. I am using the debugger player.
Was able to test non-debug version. Problem exists with either.
