Try a different web browser
While Blend is optimized for Google Chrome, other support web browsers include Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari (macOS only). If you experience an issue on a specific web browser, try one of the others and see if the issue persists.
Note: Internet Explorer is no longer supported.
Update your web browser
Make sure your web browser is running the latest available version to ensure full compatibility. Visit Supported browsers and devices to learn more.
Some functions in Blend will redirect you to another page (e.g., If you get an error when trying to set up an eSignature on a follow-up). If you encounter an error while you are trying to perform a task, it's possible that your web browser's pop-up blocker may be preventing you from advancing to the next page.
To allow pop-ups from Blend in Google Chrome:
- Click on the pop-up blocker icon.
- Select Always allow pop-ups and redirects from option.
- Click Done.
- Try again.
For other web browsers, follow the steps linked below.
Microsoft Edge - Block or unblock pop-ups in Microsoft Edge
Mozilla Firefox - Pop-up blocker settings, exceptions, and troubleshooting
Safari - Allow or block pop-ups in Safari on Mac
Try again in private mode
Most web browsers include a private browsing feature. Private mode typically disables cache, cookies, browsing history, or other personal settings that can sometimes interfere with your browsing session. To rule out the possibility that these factors are causing an issue, try again in a private window.
Google Chrome - Browse in private
Microsoft Edge - Browse InPrivate in Microsoft Edge
Mozilla Firefox - Private Browsing - Use Firefox without saving history
Safari - Use Private Browsing in Safari on Mac

Hardware and network connection
If the suggestions mentioned above did not help resolve the issue, consider the following:
- Try a different computer - If the issue is not replicated on a different computer, the issue lies with the computer and not Blend.
- Find out if another colleague is also experiencing the issue - If the issue is not reproducible by another user, the issue is likely tied to the user account, web browser, or computer.
- Check your internet connection - If you experience issues on other sites such as pages loading slowly or not loading at all, it may be your internet connection. Reach out to your IT department for assistance with connectivity.
Gather console and network logs
If the issue persists after performing all steps above, gather the console and network logs and send them to us so we can investigate. The console and network logs can provide additional details behind the interaction that is causing the error. Refer to Reporting a bug to Blend Support to learn how to gather the console and network logs.
