When I try to save a PDF file in Safari I get a dialog box saying it cannot be done.  How can I "save as..." a PDF file?

Back up all data.

 

Quit Safari. In the Finder, select Go Go to Folder... from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-G. Copy the line of text below into the box that opens, and press return:

 

/Library/Internet Plug-ins

 

From the folder that opens, remove any items that have the letters “PDF” in the name. You may be prompted for your login password. Then launch Safari and test.

 

If you still have the issue, repeat with this line:

 

~/Library/Internet Plug-ins

 

If you don’t like the results of this procedure, restore the items from the backup you made before you started. Relaunch Safari again.
