Snow Leopard bug Can't open web pages that require the Acrobat reader plug-in or some other plug-in, such as my online bank? Running Safari in 32-bit mode may fix that too as it can then access the (32-bit) plug-in.   Sep 2009 10.6 Sven 
Snow Leopard bug Can't print from Preview or Safari? Close the application; go to its icon in the Application folder; click Cmd-I; check the "Open in 32-bit mode" box in the General section; close the information window. Now restart the app and print. (At this point Preview may crash, but only after it prints).  Sep 2009 10.6 Sven
