    Brilliant! A slight twist to my system situation. I didn't see a plugin for Acrobat (Pro or Reader), but the setting was to automatically open using Acrobat Pro in what looked a little too generic for me (the App icon was a generic "A" as in the Apple icon), so I used that pop-up menu to select an app, choosing the current app (Acrobat Pro X), closed, restarted, worked perfectly.

     

    Thanks Dansyacht, awesome tip. Much appreciated.

    Another thanks. Worked perfectly for me. A couple of additional minor comments (besides a return to normality). The "new" disk save icon that would appear in the pdf space no longer shows up, just the other previous icons (zoom in/out, download and, Now I see that one of them was to open it up in Acrobat (doh!). But the control click options of saving as, or open in Acrobat are now restored.

     

    Many thanks for the solution sacmacguy!! The odd thing is that I don't recall a recent Adobe update. But no complaints. Whatever works.

    Thanks so much to Sacmacguy.  You saved me.  I was in middle of writing  my master's project and stopped being able to download PDFs.  You fix worked.

     

    A loud boo to Adobe

    Yes, many thanks to sacmacguy's solution. Worked for me. Can I assume removing that NPAPI. plugin won't cause any other problems?

     

    I wasn't able to save pdf's recently, but it didn't dawn on me until today that something has changed. Glad I came across this thread.

    Thanks Sacmacguy. This problem has been bugging me for too long. I trashed the "AdobePDFViewerNPAPI.plugin" (mainly because I don't know where the Disabled Plug-ins Folder is!), restarted Safari and all is right again.

     

    Cheers to you.
