Can't print internet coupons? Here's a quick fix!

     Are you having trouble printing Bricks coupons: getting a “please wait” or “please install printer” message. If this seems to be your problem I have found some information that may be helpful to you. I read an article recently that explained how to fix it.

     The problem is that most of these coupons have a link that is meant to be printed in a certain browser (i.e. Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari.Opera). When you try to print a coupon in a different browser than was intended, you will get one of those annoying messages

     When trying to print a “bricks” (starts like this coupon you will need to change a few letters in the address depending on which browser you are using:

     For example if you clicked on this example in Internet Explorer (IE)  it would work fine: but if you tried to use the same link in Firefox, you would get one of those annoying messages about being unable to print..blah, blah, blah!

If you are using Internet Explorer, this link will work just fine. For those using Internet Explorer (IE) your link can look like this:


If you are using Firefox (FF) just change those two bold letters in the addresses above to either “vg” or “wg.” So it would look like this


Safari users on Mac should change the two letters to "xs", like this:
