Browser Tips

Throughout the semesters that Yale has been using Canvas @ Yale, we have discovered some great tips related to supported browsers:

  • Mac users may find it easier to use Firefox rather than Chrome.
  • Microsoft Edge does not work well with Canvas and should be avoided.
  • If you are not able to see a tool or feature correctly in one browser, please try to update the browser or try another one.
  • Clearing your browser's cache and cookies may help when trying to resolve viewing issues in Canvas.
  • Many tools in Canvas require third party cookies to be enabled. Learn how to check this setting with our "Enable 3rd Party Cookies" article.
