cannot print from the print button at the end of the first step of ANY instructable Answered

when I try to print using the print button at the bottom of the first step of any instructable I get an error screen. I am using two different computers running Int Exp v 6 and 7 I think - if I use firefox the preview comes up with a bunch of gibberish text and characters. "The error from MS Explorer is Internet explorer cannot download print.html from www.instructables.com. Internet explorer was not able to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try agin later." Behind this is a box that says "File download print.html from www.instructables.com" but nothing ever happens. I am logged on as my userid cnc_gary. I'm not sure when this started, but in the past few weeks. Both computers are Intel duo-core running XP sp2 - prior to this I could always print the whole instructable. Is there something that I need to change or... Gary

I never noticed this before; is it new? Cool, I can make PDFs now! (goes and does it....) Yep, they work....but some of the image "comment boxes" are white, and block the image underneath. It looks fairly random--some boxes are fine.

The same thing happened to me whenever I tried to print an instructable, except it did not display errors, just weird characters, an that happened with IE 6&7, and Firefox.
