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?

Hello Ingrid,


I just checked your account and I can see that you haven't finished creating your account. You need to finish creating your profile first so you can start submitting proposals. Please read the following articles to help you get started.
