So, everyone uses different browsers, from IE to FireFox to Safari.

Sometimes people paste links that they recieved in FireFox, which do not work in Internet Explorer or vice versa. You get the "Please wait..." or "Please Install The Coupon Printer" even if you already did.

This trick will allow you to simply change 2 characters in the URL to make a FireFox link work in Internet Explorer and vice versa

Here's how easy it is, the following is a FireFox link:

note the "wg" in the URL. This link gives the repeating Please Install The Coupon Printer in Internet Explorer.

To make that link an Internet Explorer link we simply change "wg" to "wi" OR "vi" (in this case, both variations work, other coupons it may be wi or vi, trial and error):

UPDATE: If you want to print Bricks coupons on a MAC with Safari, replace the "wg", "wi", or "vi" to "xs". You can also do the reverse, take a Safari link "xs" to IE "wi" or "vi" or to FireFox "wg".

You do the opposite if you want to print an Internet Explorer link in FireFox!


PS. I changed http to hxxp so you guys can see the full URL without the forum code making it a clickable link.

I was hoping a Mod/Admin could sticky this thread. It seems to have been very useful via all the Reps and PMs I've gotten about it.


Just saw a referral to this thread from another. Evidently the Mods didn't sticky it. In case anyone would like to sticky this, and doesn't know how, here you go - Go up to thread tools towards the upper right of the OP. Click on that, and a drop-down menu will appear. Click on stick the thread to the top. That's it. Next time you open the coupons thread, it will be shown there with the other stickys. HTH

Apple Safari worked for me. Too bad SmartSource didn't bother to tell us that downloading Safari would solve that problem. Before I found out about Safari I tried everything on their trouble shooting page and corresponded by email with about a dozen different people, none of whom were any help. They all acted like I must be doing something wrong. Mad

I just downloaded Safari and just to know, i can print SS coupons. I started the Free Zantac and it worked!! Thank goodness. No coupon printer download needed.

How about the ability to print "bricks" coupons in safari????
I can't seem to get past the "print coupons" page..Don't want the 'mac' printer download...
any ideas?

You have to install their coupon printer to print coupons, on a MAC or PC.

This trick just allows users to 'change' the browser the link is calling for, since some people copy/paste links from FireFox or vice versa.

i can get the coupon installer installed....but then nothing ever happens. Makes me cringe at how muchmoney I'm giving away because I can't print please!

FYI, for SmartSource you must have the latest Java installed for your browser ( and Java enabled in Tools->Internet Options->Security tab->Custom level. You want to bubble in the Prompt option for all the Java options except the ones "Marked Not Safe".

For Bricks, if you still cannot print, PM me and I will try to assist you further.
