SourceTree is using IE in the background to get to https://id.atlassian.com, so you need to figure out why IE is blocking that site. Make sure you use a supported version of IE.

There is also an issue logged for it, SRCTREEWIN-7949, check it out and also add yourself as a watcher in case there is a workaround or a fix for it.
