I can't connect to Github from Sourcetree

When I try to connect to GitHub, the "Authorize Atlasssian" button is not clickable.  I've tried searching through the Forum of issues and only found one that seems similar, but the post there is unanswered.   I've already logged in to GitHub previous to this screen by entering my name and password.   What else would cause the button to be dimmed out?

Thank you for the reply.    Uninstalling Sourcetree and reinstalling got me past this error.   Yay!  I don't know what happened.

As I mentioned in the other thread as well, you can try revoking access to Sourcetree if its already preset in your GitHub profile or restarting your Mac. You could also check if there is  any other web app that is using the given port (i.e, 34106) on you Mac. If that is the case, try stopping that process and try again. If that works, please let us know and we can consider changing that port.
