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

Sometimes people paste Coupons.com/Bricks 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:
hxxp://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=ri3peuo59687503&bt=wg&o=53740&ci=1&c=GM&p=TyQrvJAY

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):
hxxp://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=ri3peuo59687503&bt=wi&o=53740&ci=1&c=GM&p=TyQrvJAY
or
hxxp://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=ri3peuo59687503&bt=vi&o=53740&ci=1&c=GM&p=TyQrvJAY

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.

Thanks.

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

Hi all.... I've just recently started having a problem with Bricks on my Vista laptop (previously it would print Bricks). After clicking 'print coupon', it shows the printing page (dots from computer icon to printer). Then without printing it goes to the "Next/Thank You" page. If I try again, it does the same thing, then on the third try it tells me I have printed my limit. Argh!!! I have no problem on the XP desktop.
Go into the Control Panel, then Printers, and make sure the printer you want to use has a 'checkmark' next to it, if it does not, right click your printer and select "Set as Default".

Where did you find the solution to the Mac problem with Safari?

1. I checked the URL and the "xs" is already there. I didn't need to replace it.

2. I installed their coupon printer successfully.

Now...when I print, it looks like something is happening on the screen. There is a cheesy animated graphic showing a computer connecting to a printer. But then nothing happens! Did I miss some crucial step to get this to work?

In the wiki. If you have the "cheesy graphic", it should work at that point. Mine just said loading or something forever until I found this fix.

Oops, not the wiki, the first original post.

This is exactly what I did (use Safari, not Firefox):
On a MAC with Safari, replace the "wg", "wi", or "vi" to "xs".

Can someone plz give me some advice? I have a new computer using IE8, and when trying to print coupons it tells me that it supports 7, not 8. Is there a way around this??

Hi there,
I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm having a heck of a time even trying to download the coupon printing software on my mac. Everytime I try to download it says installation failed. Perhaps someone can help me? Thank you.

Have you tried using Firefox and Safari?

How new is your Mac? I just bought one with the Snow Leopard operating system, and I noticed some applications do not work yet because the system is so new.

But if that's not the problem, then all you need to do is open up either Safari or Firefox browser (like the last person posted), go to the Bricks coupon page that you want, and then change the two letters in the URL code in the address bar. The instructions are posted in the very first page of this thread.
