    To eplain the problem, I'll just give the steps that produces it ...

    1. Go to the following page ...
    2. Click the icon for a Printable puzzle -- IE7 displays a nice gif image.
    3. Click File/PrintPreview or File/Print -- only a "red x" appears where the
    image should be.
    4. Close the Print/Preview or Print window, go back to the nice gif image,
    and click IE7's refresh button.
    5. NOW repeat (3) -- the "red x" is gone, and the image prints ok!

    Why is it necessary to refresh a just-loaded image before it will print?!

  3. Hi,

    This behavior is not is not exclusive to IE7, it is also present in IE6 and
    Avant the Browser.

    The help page (for printing) at that site suggests(under "Important Note:")
    that you use the Back and Forward button to over come this issue, doing a
    refresh as you suggested also solves the issue.

    Other options include using the Firefox or Opera browser to get around this

    Good luck,

  4. It's not. It's even stranger than that. E.g. set Work Offline (Alt-F,W)
    and clone the tab (Alt-d,Alt-Enter). Then you can use Print Preview
    without a Refresh. That means that the image was cached. But I still can
    print only the cloned tab.
