Can not download PDFs to Safari or Firefox. 27" iMac running 10.8.2. Have disabled two Adobe plug ins per search in community. Did not work. Dowloads fine on other computer (older iMac, 10.6.8). Advice appreciated. Lyman

New iMac 27" running 10.8.2. Can not dowload PDFs. Have taken two Adobe plugins out of library (as suggested in comments I found last night). Did not fix proglem. Older iMac running 10.6.8 sitting next to new one can download fine. Then have to move downloads to new machine to use them. Thanks for help and suggestions. Lyman

My own answer. This was solved by a simple restart of the computer. This is the second time in a week that a restart has been needed to resolve "refuseal to work" type problems. I don't recall restarting being a regular fix in earlier OSs.Hope this doesn't become a standard fix as that could be really tedious. Lyman.

  • Can't save PDFs from Safari or Firefox after latest (10.1.3) update

    I just installed the latest update, and now when I open a PDF in Safari, I can't save it to my computer. I get a message saying "The document XXX.pdf could not be exported as XXX." When I try to do it from Firefox, the PDF won't even open. I tried deleting the plugins and reinstalling Reader and that didn't help. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Hi mccradks1,
    Regarding firefox, update it to version 10.0 or later and use it in 32-bit mode only.
    To save pdf's in safari, please try using the save button in toolbar and see if it works.
    Toolbar is present in two different forms:
    1.
    2. This toolbar appears when you hover the mouse at bottom of pdf screen.
    Thanks,
    Nikhil

  • How can I download PDF's

    I cannot download PDF documents. I get an error message; i.e., The document “1-15_HowtoSellWithoutSalesy.pdf” could not be exported as “1-15_HowtoSellWithoutSalesy.pdf”.
    This is a recent event since I installed the newer version of Adobe. Any thoughts?

    Actually, I have two websites: Safari and Firefox. It doesn't matter which website I'm logged in to, I get the same message. As for downloading from the Adobe website, how do I do this? I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to completely uninstall Adobe and reinstall the latest version. Is this a good idea or will I lose the PDF's I was once able to download? As I said, this problem has been going on for the last 6 weeks, when I downloaded the latest version of Adobe.
    Thanks for your continuing help.

    That is not a Reader message. It is a message being generated by the website. They may have a javascript or something trying to prohibit the download of the pdf to your computer. Try downloading a pdf from the Adobe website and see what happens.

  • Posting problem using safari or firefox with IMAC

    Can anybody help with the following issue. I can access the labs.macromedia website, I can access the Light room posting board. But signing in using safari or firefox on a imac is troublesome and takes several minutes and is half of the time unsuccesful. When trying to post, the signing in screen shows up and asks for e-mail address and password, no problem after pressing the button "continue" the system hangs for so long that safari reports a time out. I have no problems with other websites on the same imac machine I have tried this whole routine on a windows machines from the same location and internet connection set up and no problems at all. A report from another safari user shows also no problem at all. I assume that it is a combination of safari/firefox, this website and my machine settings. Probably I have to change something on the settings for safari or firefox or Imac, but I don't know what. Is there any experience with same problems and a solution out there?
    Regards
    Iemke

    Got to be honest and say this is really, really frustrating!
    Am I the only person who cannot view trailers at Apple's website, even with their browser?

  • Ever since I downloaded the latest version of firefox..is running slower, I am not really liking the new format, is there anyway to go back to the old one?

    A possible cause is security software (firewall) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
    Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.

  • Can't download PDF through IronPort (result:corrupted pdf)

    Hi,
    Users can't download  PDF through IronPort web proxy(7.3.1)
    The result is always the same: corrupted pdf.
    Who can help me ?

    Hi,
    Please check in access policy matched, in 'Objects' column, if you have any limit set or type of files blocked.
    You can also perform a test - create a Custom URL Category and add the
    website where you are downloading PDF in it, then in access policy -> URL Filtering, configure this Custom URL Category to 'Allow'.

  • I can't download PDF's from iCloud.  Everything else downloads fine.  Any suggestions?

    I can't download PDF's from iCloud.  Everything else downloads fine.  Any suggestions?

    Ok, and is this on your Mac in the native Mail application, or on your Mac using iCloud webmail at http://www.icloud.com/ in a web browser? If the latter, which web browser?
    When you say you "can't download" - do you actually mean download and save to your hard drive as a file, or do you mean you can't view PDFs inside the mail application?
    What happens exactly when you try to download/view these PDFs? Any error message?

  • I can't download the latest security update to my iMac with Yosemite 10.10.1

    I can't download the latest security update to my iMac with Yosemite 10.10.1

    Hi mesuno.  I can't download the update either.  When I click on "Update" I see the download progress bar for only a fraction of a second.  Then I get a message in the "updates installed" area saying that the update has been installed.  Then the Security Update notice returns and so does the "Update" button.  Then I press "Update" again and the same thing happens.  I can do this ad infinitum.
    The system seems to be confused.  I have several entries in the "installed" area saying that it has been installed, but still the "Update" button persists.  When I check with "Sytem information" there is no record of the installation.
    Is there something wrong with the App Store app, or does anyone else have a better idea?
