Tor Browser Mac 7.0.10

File -> Print -> Pdf -> Save as Pdf

... after a pause, gives error:

"Print Preview Error

An error occurred while printing."

Pdf file that is produces is corrupted.

This bug has been present through several versions of Tor, over the last 6 months or so.

The feature is useful for keeping snapshots of webpages while Tor browsing.

I cannot reproduce this problem on a macOS 10.12.6 system.
What version of macOS are you using?
Does this bug occur for all web pages or only certain pages?

Happens for me with most all web pages, including this one.

I'm using OSX 10.13.1 .

Printing to pdf works with all my other apps still.... odd.

Interesting.. Can anyone confirm on 10.13.1?

Unrelated, I thought a while ago Tor Browser used to give a warning when downloading (not printing) pdf that it could compromise anonymity. Wonder if torbrowser can print / convert to pdf/A instead. Pdf/a does not include links or embedded stuff that might do this. Just a thought.
