The issue cause

While taking training in the LMS365 player, learners may encounter the "[site].com refused to connect" issue instead of the content to go through, as in the image below.

This may happen to content that is added to a course learning module, for example, Microsoft Office documents. 

The issue reason is in the third-party cookies settings of the user's browser.
