Firefox 10 Download

One of my most common email questions are folks having trouble printing coupons or seeing something strange happening on the site.  If you’ve ever sent me a message like that, you probably got a response asking what web browser you are using – outdated browsers are often the culprit.

Since starting Southern Savers, I’ve learned a lot about how much your web browser can affect what you can see and do on websites.  For example, if you are using Internet Explorer 6, you probably don’t even see the printable shopping lists on Southern Savers.  My network engineer husband would also tell you that it’s very important to keep your browser up to date for security reasons.  They are always releasing patches, updates and new features so don’t ignore those messages asking you to download the latest version (I normally do mine in the morning first thing).

Mozilla Firefox is one of the best browsers out there in terms of security and functionality (and it’s free!).  They’ve just released a new version, Firefox 10, so if you have unresolved issues, you might want to upgrade and see if it helps!

While I prefer Firefox, I want to encourage everyone to upgrade to the latest version of any browser you are using.  Apple Safari and Google Chrome are also very good options for a good experience on the web.

      Why is my Avast anti-virus blocking a Trojan Horse today, every time I click on anything on the Southern Savers website?

        Me too :(

      • We had a little issue with a file.  Its fixed now.  Try clearing your history, cache, cookies, etc. and restart your browser.

      Interesting! I’ve noticed that I can’t print coupons using my mac with firefox, only safari. Just a note for some users… hope it helps.

      I use Safari and still have an awful time printing coupons. It tells me to download the Mac coupon printer, which I’ve done multiple times to no avail.

      I use Chrome & I used to have NO printing issues.But now I haven’t been able to print for a few weeks;-( The sites keep telling me to install “Coupon Printer”. (which I have done…numerous times) Very frustrating!! 

      • Couponsue123

        Mine does the same thing!  Frustrating!

      • Sheeba

        Me too.  I install it and my coupons still don’t print.  I try again and it keeps telling me to install ???  Done this numerous times and it never works.  Anyone have any ideas as to what we can do?

    • Jennie

      Chrome is my favorite!  And an added bonus… you can pick a decorative theme for Firefox and Chrome.  Not sure about any other ones, though.

    • Samer

      Chrome is the best browser to use because it will sync your history, bookmarks, etc into your gmail account so if you get a new computer everything will sync over automatically. Also now chrome is on andriod which will sync those to your phone as well.

      My husband works for Mozilla.  Go Firefox!

      I love Firefox, but I have lost more than one coupon due to printing issues on my Mac. Chrome seems to behave most of the time, but Safari seems to be the most dependable browser for printing coupons. This is unfortunate because I really can’t seem to bond with Safari. Does anyone have any secrets for printing with other browsers on a Mac? THX

      I always keep my browsers updates, no matter firefox or chrome or even Avant browser.
      They are always the lastest version. of course the official versions.

      • Sheeba

        I have Chrome and just installed it about 2 weeks ago.  Coupons don’t print.  Keeps asking me to install coupon printer every time I try to get a coupon.  Never works.
