Hi @mlmarek!
This issue may be presenting because of your Shields configuration. Try accessing with your Shields down (Go to website, click lion icon in the top right, toggle Shields to off, website should reload). If you are able to view the website with your Shields down, this will confirm that it is a Shields configuration issue. In that case, would you mind replying back here with a screenshot of the website with your shields panel open (so I can see what options are set)? Once you do I’ll be happy to continue troubleshooting with you :slight_smile:



I accessed with shields down and it loaded successfully. I closed the tab and reopened it on with shields down and it failed. Screenshot attached.


Hello again,
I apologize but I should have been more specific. I would like to see what your Shields are set to when they’re on. I suspect the issue is caused by having the “block scripts” option enabled in your Shields panel. Can you try toggling “block scripts” to off and then trying to log in? If this doesn’t work, then, again if you don’t mind sending another screenshot of your shields panel while Shields are enabled (I just need to determine which settings are enabled/disabled) we can troubleshoot further.

Thank you!


I don’t have block scripts enabled. Please see attached.


Gotcha. It looks like gmail is working properly under those Shields settings! Does that configuration consistently work for you?


Tab and website open successfully probably 50% of the time on It failed twice this morning on And occasionally it will happen on a different website (as in my original post).
