Check that you are using the latest version of Chrome, Firebird, Safari or Edge. This website will tell you if you are using the latest version of your browser. Older browsers are not supported by Firebird.
Try logging in using a different browser and test using a new Icognito or Private browser session. If this works then you may need to clear cookies on your browser. Ask you IT administrator for assistance.
Test using a different email address from a different domain. If neither works then it implies that there may be a setting on your computer or computer network that is blocking the login. If one email address works and the other does not then please contact email@example.com for further assistance.
If you are on a laptop or mobile device, try connecting to a different network e.g. Home network instead of Work network. If one network works but the other does not then please contact the IT Adminsitrator of the network that is not working - it is most likely a firewall issue.
