SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • In a window in Windows Internet Explorer 7, you view a report by using Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services or SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services.
  • You press CTRL+N to open a new window. The new window runs the same report that appears in the original window.
  • You click the Print icon on the toolbar in one of the windows, and then you click the Preview dialog box.
  • You click the Print icon on the toolbar in the other window, and then you click the second Preview dialog box.
When you return to the first Preview dialog box, you may notice that the dialog box is empty. Additionally, when you take one of the following actions, Internet Explorer crashes:
  • You try to close one of the Preview dialog boxes.
  • You click the Print icon in one of the Preview dialog boxes.
Additionally, the dialog box that announces the crash sometimes appears multiple times.

Note In this scenario in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, Internet Explorer crashes when you click the Print icon on the toolbar in the second window.
