The Samurai stands before the Mac gurus in this forum requesting help. :notworthy:

I'm using an Intel iMac running Leopard 10.5.4. I came home late one night from a hike, sat at my computer, and opened my personal blog. After I was finished posting, I pressed what was *supposed* to be the Apple-T key combo to open a new tab in Safari (the browser I always use). But I musta pressed something else because nothing happened... at first. After that, I noticed that any time I would open my blog, the print dialogue window would pop up and I have to click "cancel" every time. I'm trying to figure out what key sequence I accidentally pressed to cause this problem so that I can reverse it. The same thing also happens when I use Firefox, but not when I use Omniweb or Opera.

If any of you Mac gurus know how I can make this stop, I'll mail you an official Samurai beer stein.

Domo!

Hi,

 I noticed that any time I would open my blog, the print dialogue window would pop up and I have to click "cancel" every time.

I also get the print window when I visit the link you posted for your blog.

 

Edited to add: Using windows, tried the link with IE, Firefox and Apple Safari browsers. I get the pop up print window everytime.

Mucho domos, AJ and Pegi for checking-- that was very helpful feedback knowing that y'all are getting the same popup. That means the problem is in Blogger (who hosts my blog) and not in my browser, as I originally thought.

This is too weird! I've looked all over Blogger (who hosts my blog) at the settings and see nothing that would affect that. This isn't the first problem with Blogger, either. I think I'll just transfer it over to WordPress and leave the Blogger bugz.

Domo!

I posted this in the Google Blogger help group, not expecting anything. Amazingly, someone replied very quickly and found the problem! Turns out there was a print script embedded in one of the articles I posted. I stripped all the code out of the article and everything's peachy. :dude:
