Are you doing a Save or a Save as… ?In the second case, I bet you have the "Save as… optimizes for fast web view" option activated in your Preferences. Deactivate, and try again. Or rename the file before you open it, then do a Save.Hope this can help.
I tried the above and it still comes up with the same error.

Can you save the document without filling it out (open in Acrobat, and save it right away)? This would give some hint whether it is the document, or it has to do with the filling out. If you could list a link, I could also have a look at the document.
Also, do you try to save from a browser window, or have you downloaded the document beforehand?

I am filling out the same gov security form sf86 and I am getting the exact same error when saving the document, it happened when i reached page 27, every time i save the document all the data in the fill in boxes disappear. I did deactivate the option save as .... optimizes for fast web, but it did not change anything
