Unable to login to source tree

I have installed source tree, when i tried to start it, its asking me to log into my atlassian account. I have created a new account and procured a license. Then I click on "Use and existing account" button. When I provide my login id and click on "Next" button, i get Oops, you've made a malformed request".


I tried  few things but its not working. Anyone has any suggestion? I tried few steps from the community links, but nothing is working. please advise


thanks in advance

Hi Hiten, are you still unable to log in? If so, open Internet Explorer, go to the Advanced options tab, click on Reset your Internet Explorer Settings and check Delete personal settings This seemed to work for other users that were experiencing the same problem. 

Let us know if it worked for you!

Not work . 

I try to add Trusted sites from IE browser : https://*.atlassian.com 

It will work .

Are you able to log on to my.atlassian.comAlso, make sure that IE is not blocking JavaScripts.

I am able to login using chrome, but IE shows me same error. I don't think my IE blocks javascript

Has there been any resolution to this?  I am also not able to read the login when I click "use existing account" this is on 2.3.1

Yes it is resolved. the domain was in restricted sites in my security options. I removed it and it worked

by domain, do you mean atlassian.com?  I can get to my.atlassian and id.atlassian, etc.  But when I click the "existing account" button in sourcetree install I can't reach the site

What browser are you using when you go to my.atlassian.com?

IE browser add Trusted sites : https://*.atlassian.com

Because the web site use the some link to atlassian.com

If you want to use the google login .

You must add the trusted sites:




That's crazy. After giving up the attempt to login through SourceTree (v2.6.10), I tried another app with bitbucket integration (PhpStrorm) and logged in successfully. After that, SourceTree also logged in.
