After installing Mountain Lion, Adobe Fireworks now returns an error message when exporting via Image Preview.
“Could Not Save File” “The File Was Not Found” The file does save, but you have to click ok to get the error message to go away.
The new fireworks is suppose to be about a faster work flow, this in fact interupts the work flow by clicking the ok button. Totally annoying. Is there a fix to this problem?
I figured a way out of this to correct the problem. I went back into my Time Machine (or external hard drive) and restored all of the Fireworks files from a date before OS upgrade, replacing all. It worked. I am now able to use the export wizard and export functions without the error message "File Could Not be Found".
Cool! Thanks for sharing this.
I wonder if there's just a single item that requires restoration or if it's the entire folder. Users who try this might want to consider first making a backup copy of their Configuration folder, if they've made any changes to it since their OS upgrade (i.e., commands, auto shapes, textures, patterns, etc.), and perhaps the Plug-Ins folder, as well, if it's something they've used.
I am disappointed in Adobe. They shouldn't be taking this long to correct an issue like this. I have been using Fireworks for many years -- on an almost daily basis -- and this is a royal pain in the derriere.

A coworker of mine ran into this issue yesterday and I was able to resolve it by reinstalling Fireworks over his current install.
For Adobe (in case they are reading this), neither removing all preferences nor repairing OSX permissions fixed the issue.
To add, I just did a fresh install of mountain lion in hopes of resolving some of these Fireworks bugs. To note, I used disk utility and wiped the drive completely clean, installed fresh copy of Mountain Lion on Retina MacBook Pro (latest model).
Did not restore any files or settings. Went straight to creative.adobe.com and installed Fireworks (latest version) and the problem exists still. Just wanted to make sure everyone this is a bug with Fireworks when using the latest stable version of Adobe and Mac and not anything to do with preferences, other apps permissions or such.
Boy I wish I had read this before buying FW CS6. I was using CS4 and had just had enough of the error, knowing that the file had been exported just fine, yet I have to keep closing this error window. I thought that a quick upgrade to CS6 would fix this and tighten everything up. Yet NO! It should be clear to Adobe why so many of us are leaving... You cannot fix the most basic of issues, in CS4, in CS5, inCS6...and care not about the user experience. I have done all the basic things necessary: fix permissions, used the uninstall app to remove FW, then made a clean dwnload and reinstall. No help. Yet EVERY OTHER APP I USE SEEMS TO WORK WELL, except Adobe. Hm. What is the hint here? I have been a loyal Adobe customer since 1990s. Yet this is enough to drive me completely away.
Mine is a new Mac Pro and I'm using Creative Cloud .... Very frustrating error and this just goes to show how little Adobe thinks of us! I shall look for an alternative and will seriously reconsider my Creative Cloud membership. I really only use / need Dreamweaver and Fireworks!
This issue was reportedly addressed in the 12.0.1 update for Fireworks CS6:
