Safari errors printing to PDF save / saving web file

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

Suddenly starting getting errors today when trying to save a web page by either method. Printing-> save as PDF gives "Print" "Error while printing" after selecting a destination folder. Trying to save it was web file gives "The document “Match.com - Find Singles with Match.com's Online Dating Personals Service” could not be exported as “JL”. You don’t have permission." The only workaround seems to be to save to desktop without giving a title, change title, then move to folder and authenticate the move after being told I don't have permission.
Any ideas? This has never happened before and I haven't changed any significant setting (that I know of!).

HI and Welcome to Apple Discussions...
Try maintenance...
From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Empty Cache. When you are done with that...
From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Reset Safari. Select the top 5 buttons and click Reset.
Since you are running Snow Leopard, *make sure Safari is opening in 32-bit mode, not 64.* Right or control click the Safari icon in the Applications folder, then click: Get Info In the Get Info window click the black disclosure triangle next to General so it faces down. Select 32 bit mode. Also, (in that same window) *make sure Safari is NOT running in Rosetta*.


Web pages now include a small icon or 'favicon' which is visible in the address bar and next to bookmarks. These icons take up disk space and slow Safari down. It is possible to erase the icons from your computer and start fresh. *To delete Safari's icon cache using the Finder, open your user folder, navigate to ~/Library/Safari/ and move this file "webpageIcons.db to the Trash.*
Relaunch Safari.
