I Closed the Print Preview without Printing. This resulted in a seamonkey*.PDF file being created on the Desktop. This should only happen when selecting to Print the Preview. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open a url 2. select Print Preview 3. close Print Preview Actual Results: seamonkey*.PDF file created on Desktop Expected Results: NO seamonkey*.PDF file created on Desktop
Yes, this is a apparently a major bug, probably somewhere in widget/src/os2/nsDeviceContextSpecOS2.cpp. It is likely present in 1.9.0, 1.9.1, 1.9.2, and trunk.
Created attachment 406329 [details] [diff] [review] fix Quick fix for this problem (still wondering how this could go unnoticed for so long).
Can we remove the printf? Also, can't we at least create the file somewhere other than the Desktop (temp dir)
I imagine the printf was some cheap, harmless debugging. However, I think sticking the PDF in a temp directory instead of the desktop would be a big mistake. The user has to open it to print it, and it should be easy to find...
Created attachment 406652 [details] [diff] [review] without printf Now without the printf. I chose the Desktop exactly for the reason Steve pointed out. After asking you for review I realized that you had probably never seen this code before. I am not proud of it, but it's the only way I found that we could print at all without hanging the machine or crashing the browser. It was supposed to be a temporary workaround, but it turns out that still nobody knows how to fix the hang/crash problem when printing through cairo. So the PDF file is our best bet. (I have a patch in the works, for months already, that creates a temporary PS file and then feeds that directly to PSCRIPT or eCups printers.)
Comment on attachment 406652 [details] [diff] [review] without printf Looks good. And I do remember this code. I'd forgotten that a PDF is the only way to print.
