    For some reason, my default download folder on safari changed to some random folder named "08"? So whenever I go to download something, it'll tell me there's not enough space. I know its because it wants to put it in this folder but I currently have 22gb available on my HD so its not a space issue. So once I figured out that the default had been changed I tried to change it back to the downloads folder and a few other places but no matter what I select it still shows "08" I know this should be really simple but does any one know a way I can reset or fix this? I'll try getting a new copy and safari and update soon.

    Maybe better to delete your Safari preference file:

    ~/Library/Preferences/ >> to Trash

    Yea, although try the reset Safari first, then change it. If that doesn't work, delete that plist file.
