Note that Firefox and Chrome are the primary test targets for the dashboard software (which is called Horizon). You can see the level of support for each browser at https://docs.openstack.org/horizon/latest/user/browser_support.html

- Switch to a different browser (Firefox or Chrome recommended)
- Try the beta dashboard: https://dashboard-next.rc.nectar.org.au/project/
If you are unable to try either of these workarounds or if they don't work please get in touch and we will discuss your situation.
