Here's a new one:
At some point in the last few weeks, printing to my wireless network printer, a very average HP OfficeJet 6970, causes all
Chromium browsers to crash at the printer selection screen, upon choosing it.
(By "all" I mean the three I tested--Vivaldi, Chrome itself, and the Edge Chromium beta.)
Every other program can print over my network. Every non
-Chromium browser (like Edge or Internet Explorer) can too. It's just the magic of crashy Chromium. Reinstalling said browsers obviously did not work. Nor did reinstalling said printer after wiping the drivers. The printer does
seem like the culprit--if it hadn't been updated recently, and if everything else had no issues seeing it. I'm short of USB ports as it is, hence the need for wireless printing. I can print everything as a PDF, and use Acrobat Reader to print because it doesn't suck and crash, but that's an extra step I'd like to avoid.
Anyone else run into this? It's almost a common issue on Chrome forums, but the answer seems to be "Yeah, we don't know what's wrong. Try deleting Chrome's folder in AppData and maybe it'll help. Or not. Who knows."
