Set safari as your default browser I believe is the answer.

Either Safari is at fault or you do not have that as your default. I have Google Chrome set up as default and AutoCADWS goes straight up to Chrome.

 

Safari is the worst browser, I would prefer IE over that. Switch to Google Chrome.

Go to Options>System tab>Autodesk Exchange> and select "Default System Browser".

 

See if that helps.
