I actually have an interview, thanks to careers.stackoverflow.com!! Woohoo! The employer just asked me for a copy of my résumé, which is woefully out of date. I'd like to both send them a PDF copy of my CV (I have a PDF print driver), and use that same PDF as a comparison tool for editing my old résumé. I found this question, but when I File-->Print in FireFox, I get a blank page.

Just write out "I am Batman" on a piece of construction paper in brown crayon. That hasn't failed me yet. –  XMLbog Mar 30 '10 at 17:13
    
@NIfE - Please define "fail" with respect to your comment. I suspect you and I have very, very different perspectives on failure. –  Adam Davis Mar 30 '10 at 17:48
    
@Pollyanna: Technically, it hasn't failed for me either. I have a perfect 0/0 success rate. –  mmyers Mar 30 '10 at 18:56

@mmyers assuming you define perfect as 100%, 0/0 isn't a perfect success rate, it is a NaN% success rate. –  Kip Mar 30 '10 at 20:00
    
@Kip: How can you possibly get more perfect than NaN? –  mmyers Mar 30 '10 at 20:20

@mmyers inf% would be the best –  Kip Mar 31 '10 at 1:17
    
@AJ - this is now fixed, you should be able to print the employer view tab as well as the public view. –  Kevin Montrose Mar 31 '10 at 3:42

What version of FireFox are you running? Any potentially troublesome extensions? Which page exactly? Obviously it's working for me, but I'd like to investigate anyway.

For the immediate future I suggest printing using IE or Chrome (or Safari, etc.).

I'm attempting to print from the Employer View. I'm using FireFox 3.6.2. I will try using the only other browser I'm allowed at work (IE6, blech) and let you know. –  AJ. Mar 30 '10 at 19:03
    
Same thing in IE6. I must be printing from the wrong page...? –  AJ. Mar 30 '10 at 19:05
    
@AJ - which page are you trying to print? –  Kevin Montrose Mar 30 '10 at 19:24
    
@Kevin Montrose - attempting to print from the Employer View tab. Am I missing something completely obvious, like the "Print View" tab? –  AJ. Mar 30 '10 at 19:39
    
@AJ - no, I'm just trying to reproduce the problem, which I now have actually. A quick fix would be to publish your CV (careers.stackoverflow.com/cv/publish), and print that page. You can un-publish it afterwards. –  Kevin Montrose Mar 30 '10 at 19:43
    
@Kevin - that works! I already had my CV published, so it was just a matter of going to the public view URL. It would be nice if we could print from the employer view or otherwise, though. Thanks for your help. –  AJ. Mar 30 '10 at 20:01

Prints up nice and purty for me on IE8.
