Can't Submit Proposals

HI! I'm Amber and I seem to be having a hard time submitting a proposal or any proposals on upwork right now. I've looked around and it seems I'm the only one having this problem right now. 


To explain the process, I see a job I like, and go to click the "Submit a Proposal" button and the site loads, but nothing happens. It just loads and brings me back to the job listing, with no pop up.


I dont think I have pop ups blocked, and I've tried logging in and out and nothing seems to be working. I tried it on a different web browser to be sure firefox wasnt just acting up but nothing's worked. 


Oddly the only thing that changes in the url is an underscore and a forward slash is removed. 


Before I click "Submit a Proposal" ;


After I click "Submit a Proposal" ;


Can someone help me?

Amber, you could try these workarounds, they sometimes work:


  1. use a different browser
  2. use an icognito window (chrome), private window (safari or firefox)
  3. empty cache & cookies and restart browser, or maybe visiting this link will suffice:

Can you try again, Amber, and let me know if the issue persists?
