Attempts to print cause browser crash Answered

I'm hoping that *somebody* here can help me. I've been trying to print out a couple of instructables (all the steps in one file), but my browser crashes just about every time I try.

If I'm *lucky*, I'll get one file printed successfully before it crashes on the second instructable -- but usually the first attempt will crash the browser.

It doesn't crash my system, just the browser itself.

The latest message is:
"Internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the incovenience".

Error Signature:
AppName: iexplore.exe
ModVer: 7.0.6000.16640
AppVer: 7.0.6000.16640
Offset: 001cd123
ModName: mshtml.dll

This particular error is from Internet Explorer, but I've had a similar error producing the same effect from Firefox on the same system (at home).

I've also had the same error on Internet Explorer on a different computer (at work).

I've had the same result with instructables bookmarked on my Firefox system, instructables bookmarked on del.icio.us, as well as instructables randomly loaded from the website itself.

At home I've been trying to print to the PDF Creator software program, as I don't own a printer.

At work, I've tried to both print directly to the printer, as well as printing to Adobe Acrobat 8 in an attempt to create a PDF file.

I get the same errors, no matter which printing method I use.

All attempts to print to PDF Creator and Adobe Acrobat 8 from other web sites have worked fine -- and I've gotten instructables to print to both of those software programs once or twice. Just it's only maybe 1 attempt out of 20.

Admin - if more detailed error reports would be helpful, please contact me at the address on my account.

I'm having the same problem in Firefox & IE & Safari. I try to print Crochet Moustache Hat and get this error: 403 Forbidden Request forbidden by administrative rules when I click on the 'print' link. Doesn't look like a browser issue. thanks, jamowa
