Salesforce supports almost all the major modern web browsers. However, some users have reported that Salesforce is not working in their Chrome browser.

Below, we have listed a couple of troubleshooting tips to help you resolve the Salesforce problem with ease.

Why is my Salesforce not loading?

It’s possible that the problem stems from the cache or cookies stored in your browser, in addition to any malfunctioning add-ons.

However, there is no need to be concerned because we have provided solutions to each of these possibilities in the list that follows.

Users reported similar issues to the Salesforce not loading one. The following are the most common ones:

  • Salesforce Chrome extension not working – Like we presented below, you will have to turn off your extensions one by one to see which one causes the issue.
  • Salesforce freezing in Chrome – Blocked cookies can cause websites to freeze due to not being able to send their data.
  • Salesforce not responding – Websites don’t respond from time to time, and even though it might be your fault, their servers could also be down.

What is the best browser to use with Salesforce?

Before we jump to the solutions, we’d like to recommend opening Salesforce in another browser. On this note, we suggest trying the Opera One browser, since it’s faster and considerably lighter compared to Chrome.

Opera One is free to install and use, and it comes with multiple exclusive features including an ad blocker, built-in messenger apps, customizable speed dials,  separate workspaces, and visual bookmarks.

To protect your identity while browsing, Opera One includes a free VPN, with no subscription or traffic limit. This way, you’ll be able to access any program, from anywhere across the globe.
