Having problems accessing the databases?
2. If the problem is more complex, try one of the following solutions:
Change language and/or Caps Lock
Check if your keyboard language is English and the Caps Lock key is not on.
In the browser main menu, open a new window to access the databases.
If you can access the databases via a new Incognito window, you need to delete cookies. See below.
