Description ken quirici 2008-04-02 14:51:19 UTC
I'm on Mac OS 10.5.2, running Firefox for my browser.

Every so often I run into an article that I can't print - when I select print from
the drop-down window up top it brings up the printer selection pop-up - after I
select my printer, and push the button to print, I just get that circling little 
radial circle, and it never stops. I have to Force Quit the application.

It seems to be particular articles - right now I can't print the article
'Syon House' altho I can print other Wikipedia articles and other Internet
pages - this happened once before with another article but I can't remember

It's not an issue of which of my printers I select, it happens with both:

I have an HP officejet 6210 (color) and an HP laserjet 1200.

Mac OS X 10.5.2, Minefield 3.0pre (i.e. Firefox 3 beta) as web browser and HP Deskjet 5740 as printer, so it's quite the same configuration as yours.

I can print Syon House article without problem, the only thing i have is a second page blank (when I output it as PDF, it appears to be images at the right).

Seems a bug for Firefox, not for Mediawiki. And even for that race cases, it only fails on /some/ articles.
There's little to do at mediawiki end (avoid some specific markup?).
