HP Printer/Mac problems

Skitt01,

I have exactly the same apprehensive attitude about Mavericks having had exactly the same problems with HP. How is the wifi with your new Canon, and is it easy to set up?

my file keeps becoming 'read only'

Thanks very much for the kind assistance. Actually Dogbreath had the answer - I had a forward slash in the file title. I just removed that and everything was back to normal.
I am so grateful!...

Safari won't 'Save as'

When I try to 'Save As' a downloaded pdf file (readable on screen) it just leaves an empty document on the desktop. I think this started with Os X.8.5.
Is there a fix for this please? Paul
