[FX.php List] Problem creating mPDF file

I'm having a problem creating a PDF using mPDF; here's what happens:

1. If I create the PDF to the browser


it works fine.

2. If I try to create the PDF using a filename, so that I can attach and email it


it returns the error

mPDF error: Unable to create output file: cert.pdf

3. If I use this:


it prompts for a directory and creates the PDF.

UNFORUNATELY, #2 is what I need; has anyone had this issue, and if so, how did you resolve it? I've used this exact same page of code with another site and it worked fine... different server, but from what I can see, the web server isn't the issue.

Thanks for any help; best,
