Strange things will happen when you work with Microsoft. I was trying to connect to my Azure account to execute some scripts when I came across this issue “Azure PowerShell Authentication Shows White Screen”. Connect-AzureRmAccount command on powershell opens a blank sign-in window which white dialogue box. this will not work even if you will leave it for ever to rule out the slowness and other possibilities. I stayed at under list picture for an endless amount of time without any luck.

Solution-1: This can happen if you are using default windows settings and your default browser for internet is selected as IE. Apparently I had set the security settings higher around the time that the issue started occurring. Turning down the security works well.

Solution-2: Go to Windows Settings –> Apps & features –> Default apps –> Web Browser. Change the browser from Internet explorer to Firefox or any other browser. This resolved my problem. hopefully it will solve your problem as well.
