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 controls;
- 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

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

Sorry for the mis-post here - I'll do more research on Adobe and IE.

Solved my print problem by unchecking an option in Adobe Reader - Display PDF in browser. Solved my garbled dialog box and the printing of the document.

Of course - the down side is that you must close the document and then the now-empty browser window.
