For several of my Google Analytics accounts, I try to access Site Overlay and it goes to the Web page and a "milky white overlay" goes over the page and it hangs. No site overlay data ever is presented on the page.

I contacted Google Support and they confirmed this is a problem some people are having and that they are working on it.

They said for some people clearing browser cache and cookies solved the problem (not for me).

Yeah, I stopped using site overlay a long time ago. It kept crashing FireFox. Real good crashes too.

If you are using firefox, I found that I had to enable third party cookies. Go to Tools > Options > Privacy.

It works fine on IE, I guess as have not faced any issues except that its a bit too slow.
