    Firefox hangs a LOT on printing (PDFs)


    I am using the latest Firefox 64 Quantum, V. 67, but I think this problem goes back to earlier releases.

    I save off a lot of webpages and forum posts by printing to PDF using Adobe Acrobat. I never have issues wiht Acrobat with any other programs. But with Firefox, it often hangs all open tabs when I do a print to PDF. The only way to recover is to use Task Manager to shut down Firefox.

    In general, I seem to have more problems printing with Firefox than I do with Chrome or IE. Edge seems to have its own problems printing.

    :)

    Chrome prints to a PDF, Firefox and Safari say corrupt file

    Hello,


    A friend of mine can only printo to a pdf in Chrome. When he prints to a pdf in Firefox or Safari, Acrobat won't open it, it says it's corrupt.


    What could be causing this?

  3. Print to PDF causes my main application to hang

    Hello,

    I realize that your computer hangs while trying to print PDF. I want to know few more things to understand the issue.


    • Are you trying to print from browser or from any other application?

    • What application are you using to view pdf files?

    In the mean time I would suggest to re-install the pdf application.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance with Windows, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Thanks and Regards
