The component used to handle that process relies on internet explorer and its configuration.

Essentially if you can login to using IE you should be able to complete the process

Best advice as of today for registration webview issues with IE:

  1. open Internet Explorer
  2. open the Developer tools, f12
    1. set the Browser Mode 10
    2. set the Document Mode Standards
  3. open Cog/Internet options
    1. ensure the following settings are enabled
    2. Misc/Access data sources across domains
    3. Misc/Allow META_REFRESH
    4. Scripting/Active Scripting

v3.0 which is currently in beta provides an alternative process that does not rely on IE.
