Closed Bug 92659 Opened 20 years ago Closed 18 years ago
Doesn't print news msgs with images
1. Select a news msg with images. (I tried jpeg, stephend tried with gif). 2. Click Print in toolbar. A small window appears on the right bottom of the screen with title "printing". The native print dialog never comes up. I tried to quit the app using Ctrl+q then the print dialog came up, but ok'ing it never prints anything. stephend tried to double click the small window, the native print dialog comes up. On ok'ing it, the app crashes. He will attach a stack trace. NOTE: 1. I tested imap printing, it works fine (text, html, images). 2. Able to reproduce this consistently. Build: Today's BRANCH build on Win 2K.
Sujay, is this a known bug?
Branch build 2001-07-17: WinMe The problem also occurs on older builds so it's not specific to the 7/27 builds.
Selecting my test message in netscape.public.test on news.netscape.com and attempting to print it kills my Mac (without bringing up Talkback).
OS: Windows 2000 → All
Hardware: PC → All
To clarify/summarize: Sheela is running RedHat 6.2 and sees a crash on clicking "OK" at the print setup dialog. I'm on RedHat 7.1/Mac OS 9.1/Windows 2000. I don't have printing setup yet on 7.1, working on it. Suresh, who's on Windows 2000 like me, doesn't see a crash when he OK's the print setup dialog.
stephend/nbaca: Shd this be release noted?
yes, it should.
I've added this bug and a brief description of it to bug 90577, which is the tracker bug for release notes.
This looks like mailnews has implemented this fuctionality incorrectly. Normal printing with images works just fine, I think an implementation problem.

Not being able to print a news message with an image is less than desirable ;-)
bzbarsky: Is this still an issue ? If not we can remove this bug from the release notes... :)
No clue; someone who saw the bug originally and may have the required news messages to hand should test.
I bet this is a dup of bug #159995, at least the summary is. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 159995 ***
