Fixing Save as Adobe PDF Crashes

There have been many reported instances of the "Save as Adobe PDF" workflow crashing regardless of application, but precious few workarounds or resolutions. In troubleshooting, I discovered that there were three instances of the "Save as Adobe PDF.action" in three different locations: /Library/Automator; ~/Library/Automator; and /System/Library/Automator. By eliminating all except the version in /System/Library/Automator, the workflow started behaving, and I was able to cut PDFs directly from the Print dialog.

Camino 2.0.4

Send Article to a Friend

The Mozilla-backed Camino Project has released Camino 2.0.4, an update to the open-source Web browser that's more Mac-like than Firefox. The incremental update upgrades to the latest 1.9.0 version of the Gecko rendering engine, which includes several critical security and stability fixes. In addition, the Camino 2.0.4 update prevents a Flash 10.1 crash when you trigger Exposé while watching Flash video full-screen. Other fixes include tweaks to better remember print settings, improve behavior in the location bar, and improve the browser's capability to block Flash animation and Web advertisements.

I'm a big fan of Camino. Whenever there are issues that prevent windows from opening or buttons from functioning in Safari, Firefox or Chrome, Camino reliably opens and works. At my last job, it was the only Mac browser that would work with the monstrous nightmare IT had created for field employees. There's nothing fancy about it, it just works.

Camino has been my web browser of choice for the Macintosh. Though it has fewer features than it's foxy cousin, it's a *much* better behaved web client.
