Try with another browser or a different workstation first to see if it's browser/workstation specific

Use Incognito/Private Browsing/InPrivate mode to check for problem extensions
  • If this works, it indicates an issue with a browser extension
  • Try to disable one browser extension at a time, close out of the browser, and see if the issue still happens to narrow down a possible extension with the issue
  • Note: With Incognito/Private Browsing/InPrivate modes some extensions might still be running with those depending on your configuration.
    • Please check your browser's documentation for your version on how to use these modes.

Run with browser's Safe Mode / No Add-on modes to see if something additional connected to the browser is causing an issue.


Try clearing browser cache


Check the Clarity app-ca.logs for any warnings/errors / enable additional debugging



Enable Dev Tools (browser trace) to see if any information display to help point to root cause


Is this happening in a customized UI Theme? 

If yes, test with out of the box theme to see if that works, at least for short term
