Error -Apologies, doesn't work on your browser.

Hi. I downloaded the source tree app and trying to configure it for first time  but for Atlassian log in am getting error page "

Apologies, doesn't work on your browser"

The email id I am using for Atlassian login was verified. 

Please someone help me if you know how to resolve it.

Same problem, first run of source tree, it wants you to login "once", I use and succeed logging in and get this nonsense in the dialog that is is using for login:


Went to the log file page, headed to the location and there is no log file created yet.

It does give you two choices before getting to this error.  If you choose use an existing account you end up here.  

If you choose Go to My Atlassian you end up logging and and landing on a page which is 404.  This one: 

What a mess.  Love my Jira and Confluence but this is epic fail.

I'll add, it leave you stuck here in the process: 


I have the same problem as Kevin Malm is there no solution ?

Something that was reported to help in some cases was to check local firewall preventing access to the outside but also a reinstall of Source Tree.

Just assuming you get the issue with Source Tree but not directly in browser.


Went to web and downloaded current windows version.  I will note I now downloaded SourceTreeSetup-3.4.5.exe  whereas before I downloaded SourceTreeSetup-    Obviously quite different.

This time the app looks completely different and it is working well so far.  Haven't done much but connected to bbucket, github and gitlab. 

Not seeing any of the hassles I'd seen before.

Interesting, so probably the SourceTreeSetup- was an old(er) version or a different product - it just does not want to fit into the 3.x.x version scheme.
Good to hear the situation now looks better! Well done!

I have the same problem. Downloaded SourceTree today. Installation went okay but after the first launch at step 3 - "Atlassian account" when I select "Use an existing account" a popup shows up and after I log in I get the "start atlassian com doesnt work on your browser" message.


Any suggestions?

Could you also please have a look into logfiles (better described here) like I suggested to @Andreas Bank previously?
Hopefully there is some hint which applies to both of you and gives some clue why the connection is not made successfully.

Same problem, looks like new update doesn't refresh shortcuts or leaves old version available.

Could you please describe the steps more in detail which you take and where the error is presented?
From the previous poster's question it did not came out clear if it is related to a browser and/or Source Tree (he mentioned source tree app).

Thanks in advance!

Could you probably show a screenshot?

So SourceTree is meanwhile installed and you are trying to navigate to from your browser? Or do you try it somehow from within SourceTree?

Is there anything special to do on Normally it is a dashboard where you can jump to several (cloud) sites you probably have.

sourcetree_error.pngScreenshot of the error. Happens right after I enter my Atlassian credentials and press "sign in".

If I manually enter in my browser (Firefox) it then it works. But I suspect this error is related to SourceTree using an unsupported browsing plugin or it not sending any client info when doing this step.

Have you had the chance to look into logfiles of SourceTree the moment you try to open it?
Hopefully there is some hint why it is not able to load that page.

Infos on how to look into logs for SourceTree you can find here:

Could you reproduce in incognito mode ?

I tried now. But it doesn't help.

Please suggest me any other workaround.
