Safari will not print and exits each time I try

Everytime I try to print from Safari the programme exits and I have to re-start. This seems to have happened only since the latest software update from Apple. Any ideas please?

This kind of thing is very often related to browser plugins - have you installed any lately?

Nothing recently, but I'll have a check to make sure. Thanks

Just checked my extensions. Nothing new

Try deleting com.apple.Safari.plist from your Library/Preferences folder. Then reboot.

Thanks, Bremner - didn't work, in fact, I do not have that entry at all!

It has to be a bug in MacOS Sierra as it also affects another computer, also updated, but NOT my wife's MacBook which is not updated to Sierra

You realise it is a hidden file

I have all files visible but still cannot locate this file

I have just checked my iMac and the file is present.

Just to be sure all your hidden files are visible hold down Alt and click Go and then Library then go Preferences and seek if you see the file

That was interesting. I now have com.apple.Safari.plist com.apple.Safari.plist.lockfile showing 0 bytes and com.apple.Safari.plist.Tq6sYHL showing 0 bytes
