Description

16 years ago
Win98SE Build 2002053004 Trunk Build
Okidata 14e LED Laser Printer - Latest Drivers (USB)

Printing from the browser or email/news results in a printed page that is upside
down and backwards on the first try. Second try results in garbled characters
and pages continue to print until printer is shut off.

Netscape 7.0b1 does not exhibit this problem at all.

Windows Test Page prints normally.

Loaded the latest trunk build 2002060517 on another workstation that has NEVER
had Mozilla or NS 6/7 on it and the same problem occurs. Printing to an Epson
Photo 750 is normal on all workstations running Moz and/or NS 7.0b1

try re-installing the printiner driver, this has cleared up a lot of issues in
the past. Because there isn't any reason it should work fine on one printer and
not on another.

rods: I've re-installed new as well as old drivers. No change. I'll wait a few
more nightlies and keep trying. I agree that it should work on all printers but
doesn't here for whatever reason. Also contributing to it being a Mozilla
problem is the fact that Moz was installed on a "clean" box where no browser
other than the default IE (win09se) resides. Same problem ..... dunno, will keep
trying with new builds every day or so.

Not much I can do either, ain't sending you my printer .. :-)

I print to FinePrint and then to the Okidata. Works ok, maybe the bug will work
itself out in a future build, who knows.

Well, doing nothing other than loading/installing the latest 1.1b trunk build,
the problem seems to have disappeared. Did not re-load drivers or install new
ones, just installed latest build, that's it. Will report back if this bug
reappears.
