Citibank Authorization Failure and Now Nothing Downloads

Using Quicken Classic Premier for Windows

Trying to authorize new Citi card download using Intuit to connect, click on sign in, page pops up trying to go to and the Citi consent page is blank. Authorization times out in Quicken and says sign in to Citibank failed.

Now none of my accounts will download recent activity.

    Prior to today, I was using the manual method of downloading from CitiBank. Today I attempted to set up the new connection method from Tools/Accounts. And then in the Transaction Download column from the Citi line that says Yes (Improve connection). When I click on Improve Connection it appears to try to connect with Citi, but I get the error message (see attached file, "Citibank Connection Failure"). It does not matter how many times I click "Sign In"; it fails each time.

    If I go to the gear icon (upper RH corner of Quicken Classic Deluxe), then Edit Account Details, then Online Services, I get the second screen shot ("Citibank Account Details Page). If I click on the green arrow link, I am right back to the same screen shot as the first time (file: "Citibank Connection Failure").

    On the Account Details page it lists "Deactivate", but I have always stayed away from this per the instruction shown in the 3rd screen shot (file: "Quicken_Reset vs Deactivate"). However, in this case the "reset" option is not shown. That may be because I have using the manual download method.

    Is my issue different than other users concerning Citibank, or is this the same thing others are seeing and the issue is still be working on?
