Unfortunately, we’re not able to offer support for any versions of Internet Explorer. If you’re still using Internet Explorer, we recommend switching to a more up-to-date browser.
Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer that save browsing preferences – a cookie is what keeps you logged in or logged out of a website. To use My Support Space, you’ll need to allow cookies to ensure you’re able to log in.
Updating your web browser to its latest version will ensure that any known bugs have been fixed and it displays all websites properly, while loading at its fastest speeds.
A browser’s cache is where recently accessed data is placed to make your browser load web pages quicker. However, this means that web pages can load a previous version, instead of pulling through the latest data.
Clearing your cache will ensure that your browser accesses the latest version of My Support Space.
Browsing privately allows you to access web pages without interference from any personal settings.
This also prevents your browser from collecting information and improves performance because all extensions are disabled. Private Browsing is found under the ‘Tools’ or ‘Edit’ menu in most browsers.
This deletes all history, cache and cookies and will enhance your browser’s performance. This is generally found in ‘Options’ or ‘Edit’ in your settings panel.
Browser add-ons, such as toolbars, can conflict with each other and affect your browser performance. Either uninstall or disable any browser add-ons and restart your browser, so these changes take effect.
