When attempting to log into DC NXT, eTapestry, or Education Management, the login page displays a continuous loop in some browsers

When logging in to DonorCentral NXT, eTapestry, or Blackbaud Education Management (formerly K12 ON Products) the page begins to load, but then stops and loads again when logging in with Blackbaud ID (BBID). This continues in a loop and the user cannot log in.
