  • Updating Adobe Flash.

  • Disabling any plugins/extension on your browser.


After checking the steps above, if you are still experiencing issues on your web browser, we recommend trying to access your account from a different computer to isolate any potential computer issues.


If you do not encounter the issue on another computer, then you will know that the first computer itself was causing the issue. If your issue persists, it is most likely that you are experiencing an issue with your internet connection.
