    Sorry Man!

    If Safari or your Mac froze, the above poster is right. Sorry. :eek:

    Not necessarily true if it was just Safari that froze. If the information you want is on the screen, you could do a screen capture and save as an image. Of course this will not help if the application was a long one on several pages.

    Individual apps can freeze--they generally won't bring down the whole system, though.

    I suppose it's too late now, but you could have tried switching the printer back. That sometimes works to "unfreeze" an app. If you got your data back, then you could print to PDF, since switching printers is what seemed to cause the freeze, you'd at least have a PDF. Then switch printers, possibly freezing your app, but no problem, since you can just print the PDF.

    Sorry bout that
    My only advice would have been to force-quit, open safari and hope the application is stored in the safari history.
    Sorry again, doing things over sucks! :(

    It might have been in Safari's saved forms...
    But I suppose it's too late now...

    Oh well, for future notice: Command-Shift-A fills in forms with previous values and/or Address Book info.
