Good question and the answer is: it happens for other pdfs as well, so I
guess it's not fpdf.

I've been using fpdf to create pdf files for my site. All has been well for
over a year. Suddenly I have a problem wherein IE 10 on W7 crashes when I try
to print one of these pdfs created by my php scripts.
The pdf files that I create seem fine. If I bring one up in IE and then save
it to my drive, I can then exit IE and go open the pdf and print it just fine.
I have removed my pdf printer drivers from my system and that hasn't improved
my situation. No luck there.
The exact scenario is:
- script generates pdf and opens it in a new target window;
- user clicks on print toolbar icon or File,Print;
- print dialog opens; here I see some problems in that the (very complex)
dialog is not displaying correctly with controls misaligned or overlaying other
- click on Ok to execute the print to printer and nothing happens; wait 5
minutes and still nothing;
- NOW the problems begin; when the window with the pdf in it is closed, in
about 2 seconds I get a dialog box telling me IE has stopped working.
Note that the problem only occurs when I attempt to print. If my script opens
the pdf target window and I simply close it - no problems occur. BUT - if I
actually open a print dialog I get a crash whether I click OK or Cancel, as
soon as I close the window containing the pdf.
My question is does anyone have problems with fpdf lately? Since my files seem
to be completely normal to adobe reader I don't think their content is at
fault. It seems more like IE is not handling them and I can't find anything
online about this.
I'm really hoping this is a problem wtih fpdf rather than IE since solutions
are more apt to come out of this forum than the great wizards of M$ Oz.
Does this happen only for pdfs you've generated with fpdf, or any pdf file?
Sorry for the mis-post here - I'll do more research on Adobe and IE.
