There is a little button that looks like a document with a pencil on it about 5 icons to the right of the new document button. (Called Edit Document). Pressing it will make a copy of the file and open it for editing.
The usual reason for this is a file is downloaded from the Internet to the /tmp directory, which is read-only to all except the root user.
