Configure browser settings for ProAdvisor training

Learn how to configure browser settings for QuickBooks Online Accountant training.

Are you having trouble launching a ProAdvisor Certification exam or module? Is the Training tab not loading? The issue could be a browser setting. We show you ways to troubleshoot browser issues.

Try a different browser

The easiest step to take is to log in to QuickBooks Online Accountant from a different web browser. If whatever wasn't working, now works, your original browser's settings was likely the issue.

If you still experience issues, try the browser-specific solutions in the following sections to resolve the problem.

Note:  Always make sure to use a supported and up-to-date browser.

Check your pop up blocker

Is your browser blocking pop-ups? If so, you'll usually see an alert when it happens. You can typically resolve the issue from the alert. However, the steps are different for each web browser.

If pop-ups are blocked when you access a training module or exam using Firefox, a notification bar appears.

  1. Select Options on the notification bar.
  2. Select Edit Pop-up blocker options.
  3. Add qbo.intuit.com and Accountants.intuit.com to the list of sites to Allow.
  4. Select Save Changes.

You can now reopen the Training tab, then select Start to launch the exam or module.

If pop-ups are blocked when you access a training module or exam in Google Chrome, a page icon with a red X appears on the browser window

  1. Select the icon.
  2. Select the Always allow pop-ups from “qbo.intuit.com” (or "accountants.intuit.com") option.You should also allow pop-ups from rod.sumtotalsystems.com.
  3. Select Done.

You can now reopen the Training tab, then select Start to launch the exam or module.

Microsoft Edge blocks pop-ups by default. You can temporarily disable the Microsoft Edge Pop Up Blocker to allow the ProAdvisor Training pop-up.

  1. Select the Settings and more button (three dots) on the upper right.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select View advanced settings.
  4. Under Block pop-ups, toggle the setting to Off.

After you finish the exam or module, reopen Advanced settings to toggle the Block pop-ups setting back to On.
