Try both the "light" browser-based version and the standalone desktop version. One may work better than the other. Details can be found here.

Signing in and out of the app will force it to recertify itself and should resolve this issue. Try accessing the service through a different browser. Or you can also try launching the service in an incognito session (both Chrome and Edge have been tested). This will stop extra cookie traffic and may result in a smoother experience
