Print problem in Opera 32 - fixed in 33?

  • In Opera 32 under Windows 7 64-bit Pro, on unpredictable occasions the Windows system Print dialog freezes and will not respond. I think it usually happens after I've already done some printing successfully.

    A typical scenario is that I prepare to print a Web page using Ctrl+Shift+P in order to access the system printer dialog. I click Preferences and adjust some settings, and click OK. I then click the Print button in the dialog, and nothing happens. I click Cancel, and nothing happens; likewise if I click the X to close the dialog. The page will not print and the dialog will not close. I can still access the underlying browser window, and other browser windows. But from then on, I cannot print using either the system dialog or Opera's built-in print dialog (Ctrl+P). I have to close Opera entirely (Ctrl+Shift+X, closing all windows). Then--get this--I have to go into Windows Task Manager and manually end several Opera processes that are still running. Only then can I restart Opera, go back to the page I was printing, and hope it works.

    So my questions are: (A) has anyone else experienced this? (I searched the forum and didn't find anything).(B) is it fixed in v. 33? (I don't see anything about it in the changelog.) I don't want to install that and whatever new set of problems it may have unless it definitely fixes this.

  • No one else is experiencing this?

  • Nope, no problems here.
