    IE 7 prints source code

    Hello,

    Here is my problem. IE 7 prints the source code of a page instead of the printed content. Example is when I order something online and your able to print the invoice, IE 7 will print the source code of that page. Firefox 2 works fine. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Wow, that's very strange. So you are not viewing the source and then printing, you just hit print on the page, and it prints out the source?

    Not viewing the source code. Prints the source code of the page that I am viewing. I have never seen this happen myself. Firefox works fine.

    Right. Been looking around and this should fix your problem.

    You need to set Internet Explorer as your default browser (I belive you can change it back to Firefox or whatever after, but don't quote me)

    Go Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Set Program Access and Defaults and make sure IE7 is selected as your default browser.

    Apparently it is caused by the AOL browser. Did you have this installed by any chance?

    Also, more bug details at Microsoft.

    Let us know if it works!

    alecrust,

    You're absolutely correct. At one time they used a free 2-week AOL subscription. I set IE back to default and they were able to print pages without the HTML code. Thanks again for your help.
