There was an issue on my Suse box
 relating to the webserver's canonical name
 and the access lists for CUPS.

Both of these settings were in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.
Basically the little web daemon was writing URLs to <hostname.domain>
 and then denying your click because it didn't come from localhost.
Or the other way round.

Check the URLs on the browser location window
 and try a little hand editing, see if you can get past it.
Then dive in, edit and reload.

Hope this helps,
