Printer stopped printing in OE6

  thumbscrew 19:32 01 Apr 13

I've got XP and my printer is HP D2500. I have Outlook Express 6 and I've just discovered that it won't print emails (Although it used to, perfectly) but will print from web pages. I re-installed the printer just in case, but still no joy. I don't print very often thus I don't know how long it's been like this. Can anyone help please?

Is IE the default browser? If I remember correctly OE uses the IE print settings.

No it's Firefox, but It's been that way for years and always printed.

Open IE and try to print from that. You may well have to reset IE's internet options.

Thanks both, it won't print from IE either and I can't access the options as the toolbar is not showing at the top. I've tried everything to get it back, but no joy.
