Why do I get the message "Geni Requires JavaScript!" when I try to view my family tree?

To enable JavaScript please follow these instructions:

- In Chrome, at the top right, click the More menu (Chrome_more_setting.png) , select 'Settings', click on 'Privacy and security'. Then click on 'Site settings', click on 'Javascript', select 'Sites can use Javascript'.

- In Firefox, select the 'Tools' menu and choose 'Options'. Click on 'Content' in the top navigation and then select the checkbox next to 'Enable JavaScript' and click 'OK'.

- In Safari, select the 'Safari' menu and choose 'Preferences'. Click on 'Security' and select the checkbox next to 'Enable JavaScript', then click 'OK'.

- In Microsoft Edge, on the More menu (...), select Open with Internet Explorer, select the 'Tools' menu and click on 'Internet Options'. Then, click on the 'Security' tab and then 'Custom Level'. Scroll down to the 'Scripting' section and, under 'Active Scripting', select 'Enable' and click 'OK'.

Once you have completed these steps click refresh on your browser.
