Re: Why do I get error message "Prop Bitmap DLL not loaded" when I try to print Adobe documents?

We've seen such errors before with Lexmark printers and the solution was to copy the printer DLL file(s) from a sub folder (e.g. C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Drivers\W32X86\3) to the main System32 folder.

Re: Why do I get error message "Prop Bitmap DLL not loaded" when I try to print Adobe documents?

I recently updated to Firefox 9 and every time I try to print something in draft form from an email (like a confirmation of an order I placed on a website) I get the Prop Bitmap DLL Not Loaded message. I never got that message with the 3.6 version of Firefox so it is very annoying and starting to irritate me. I print most of my things in draft form to save using up the ink in the cartridge. I have a Dell 924 printer. I uninstalled the printer and then reinstalled it but that didn't help the problem. I'm not computer savvy so I don't know how to fix the problem.
