Developer Alert: Important Update to Intuit supported web browser versions

We want to share some important information with you about supported web browser versions.

What you need to know

On April 26, 2017 only the browsers listed below will be supported for the QuickBooks Online Authorization screens. These are the same browsers that QuickBooks Online currently supports.

QuickBooks Online Authorization Screen

Supported browsers for Windows

  • Internet Explorer, version 11 or later (32-bit only)
  • Mozilla Firefox, recent versions (we block anything older than 2 releases past)
  • Google Chrome, recent versions (we block anything older than 2 releases past)

Supported browsers for Mac OS X

  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Safari for Mac version 6.1 or later
  • Google Chrome

More details and common questions are on the QuickBooks support forums here.

Do you need to change your code?

Yes: If you are using an embedded browser control from within a desktop application (for example, the .NET Windows Form Web Browser Control (system.windows.forms.webbrowser)), you’ll need to update your code. Be sure to verify that you are using the latest version of the browser enabled on the machine, and validate against the supported browsers.

No: If you are using an embedded browser control that automatically uses the latest version of the browser on the client machine (for example, the .NET IE control), you do not need to update your code.

Why is this happening now?

Due to security concerns and support for the latest JavaScript frameworks, the browsers that QuickBooks Online currently supports will also be the only browsers supported by the Intuit Developer Group, which includes the authorization screen.
