Quick Note on Printables

I just wanted to take a minute to troubleshoot a problem that you might be having when it comes to printing coupons from the internet. When you click on a link to a coupon, and then click "print coupon," sometimes you will see "please wait..." at the top of a blank screen. You wait and wait...and nothing happens. For the longest time, I just assumed that this meant that that offer had expired or the coupon limit had been reached. However, I'm just barely figuring out that it, for me any way, has meant that I have clicked a link that was for a different web browser than what I was using. For example, I use Mozilla Firefox (FF) and so I would get that little "please wait..." quite often. Again, figuring it was just an expired coupon, I let it go. Well, come to find out...if I switched over to Internet Explorer (IE) it worked just fine! :) So...sometimes blog sites will give you two separate for IE and one for FF. Click on the one appropriate for the web browser you are using. I have also found, though, using FF, that sometimes even when I click on a link that says it's for FF, it still gives me that message. So, in that case, I will switch over to IE any way and it seems to work just fine.

You may have figured this out right away, but it took me this long to figure it out, so I thought I would share this with you now, so that in case anyone else is as slow as me, it might help you out, too. I sure wish I would have figured that out sooner! :) From now on I will try to post links for both IE and FF whenever possible, but sometimes one link will work for both...and if you find that any of the links don't work, please let me know and I'll try to get it fixed ASAP. Thanks!
