Safari - Mac Mojave Xero log in not working

Started by Joe Barrett -   in Tell us how we're doing

I just upgraded my Mac to Mojave and can no longer log into Xero via Safari. Google Chrome works fine.

Thanks for sharing here, Matt.

I've made sure to pass your info here onto the team and they're now including this as a possible workaround when helping others in the same position.

We've also had reports that disabling DNS prefetching has helped some with this issue too.
To do this you'll want to;
- Go to Applications > Utilities > Launch Terminal
- In the Terminal window that opens, enter or copy/paste the following command: defaults write com.apple.safari WebKitDNSPrefetchingEnabled -boolean false
- Press enter/return.
- Quit/Close the Terminal

If neither these options resolve the issue for yourself, please do let the team know so we can track those impacted, and keep you updated on this.

Seems to be working at present for me, I enabled TLS 1.3 to test something. Either Xero fixed this or enabling this fixed it.

Thought I would mention this in case Xero didn't fix this and this might help diagnose the problem.
