Hello! I have some similar problem;

Freehand boards won't open in Safari – Error: 
Oops! We are experiencing some difficulties. Please try to reload this page!

However, the same board CAN be openend in Chrome.

Since Safari is my preferred browser, maybe there's a simple way to fix this issue?

Regards, Remko

Hi Remko,

Thanks for reaching out to our Community! I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with accessing your Freehands via Safari. 

We sometimes see odd behavior when the browser's local files associated with InVision become outdated or corrupted. Using a private/incognito window or a different browser is an easy way to test this and rule it out. 

Since the issue does not occur in Chrome, I would recommend trying to access one of these Freehands via a Safari private window.

If the Freehands load successfully in a private/incognito window, this suggests that this is possibly an issue with the browser data, and clearing that data (cache and cookies) from your browser should resolve things. 

You can find detailed instructions for this here: How do I clear my browser's cache and cookies?

Once you've cleared your browser data as per the above instructions, please restart your Safari and try accessing your Freehands as per normal. 

If the issue persists in a private window or after clearing the browser data, please let us know and we'll be happy to dig into this further. 

Thanks, Remko!

I tried it in incognito mode with internet connectivity (just ignore the no network connection symbol on the page). Kindly revert back asap since I need those latest changes on urgent basis.

I  am also not able to view Invision Freehand from InVision V6. Tried multiple browsers and Laptops and clear catch. Just Showing Invision Logo in center and nothing comes out.

Hi Rahul and UX Designer - Anblicks,

Thanks for reaching out via Community and apologies for the trouble loading your Freehands. UX Designer - Anblicks, I see you have a couple of open support tickets on this matter, when you have a moment please reply to those.

Rahul, if you're still encountering this issue can you confirm if switching networks (and disabling any VPN/Firewall) helps at all?

If not please confirm the name of your affected Freehand, and also let us know the version of your affected browser and operating system and we can get a support ticket started to take a deeper look.
