Problems uploading files in Safari 11.1

Problem: We are seeing reports of failed uploads and errors when uploading files using Safari 11.1.  Blackboard has identified this as a bug and we are waiting for a resolution.

Solution: Other browsers such as Chrome and Firefox appear to be functioning as expected.  Please use these browsers if you encounter issues uploading files in Safari.

Problem: Assignments do not display in-line within the browser in Safari on OSX.

Solution: Use another browser, or modify Safari’s privacy settings to allow the assignments to display in the browser.  Depending on your operating system version (to check this, click on the Apple in the upper left corner of your screen, then About this Mac), the steps for this are:

  • If you are running Sierra, go into Safari > Preferences > Privacy > Cookies and Website Data > set to “Always Allow”
  • If you are running High Sierra, go to Safari > Preferences > Privacy > unselect Prevent cross-site tracking
