Have done a quick search but haven't found anything on this problem.
I recently upgraded to IE8 and by and large all is OK. However have just found that I can't preview or print web pages (there may be other issues I haven't come across yet).
First noticed it today when I was going through some airline fare sites but thought it might just be a site issue. However, have just booked a flight and when I tried the Print Now option on the confirmation page same thing happened.
If I click Preview I get a blank page displayed and if I select Print just blank paper is spewed out.
Did a bit of browsing and there have been references to this on other sites but no solution, also most were referring to IE Beta.
Seems a very basic problem for Microsoft to miss.
