Steps to reproduce


When I include an inline SVG image within a flexbox element, on attempting to print/print preview IE 11 crashes.

Current version of IE11 that I’m working with is 11.0.38

Attached html contains a sample code where a flex container has 2 flex items. Within one of them I’ve added a sample SVG circle image taken from, but it basically crashes for any inline svg.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open attached html file in IE11
  2. Do Print Preview
  3. Crash


Some solutions I found online were that I set svg elements to do
svg {position: absolute}

I’ve also figured out that setting the wrapper element as inline-block also prevents the crash
.svg-wrapper {display: inline-block}
