When browsing through Adobe Stock in the CC Libraries in InDesign, I am unable to download/access any photos after licensing. I get a spinning circle and then says it's unable to download. Then I try to go to the Adobe Stock website and download directly onto my computer and it doesn't do anything. It says the photo is licensed and asks if I want to re-download, but when I do it doesn't respond.
In the past I have browsed the website and when I license photos through there it updates on CC Libraries with no issues-almost instantly. I figured I would use the cloud feature more to save some time and storage space, but it's causing me more problems than solutions.
I've attached 3 snapshots:
Has anyone experienced this or know of a solution? I have been having a lot of syncing issues with CC Libraries as a whole lately which is frustrating.

I've resolved the issue! It was because my organization is using a new firewall that I did not know they were implementing. Adobe mentions this on their website for troublehsooting, but I didn't think to check since I was unaware of the changes. Adobe Stock uses fotolia.com which is hosted in France and the firewall blocks international connections. If you are having the same issue at your job I would double check with your IT department to check if the website is being blocked by the firewall (especially if a new one is being used).
