If you are experiencing performance issues in Roadmunk, they may potentially be caused by an outdated browser or old Roadmunk code in your browser cache. The steps shown below will help you to remedy this issue and confirm whether this was the root cause of this roadblock.

Update to the Latest Browser Version

Roadmunk officially supports the 2 most recently released versions of Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari. While past browser versions may be able to support Roadmunk, the performance and security limitations of those outdated versions may prevent certain elements from displaying properly. Updates can be triggered from the Settings menu on Firefox, Edge, and Chrome, and from your System Software Update tool in both the Mac and Windows operating systems for Edge and Safari respectively. More details on this can be found in our article on Supported Browsers for Roadmunk.
