For some days now, I get server timeouts when trying to access Lemmy.ml in Firefox.

Weird thing is that I can ping Lemmy.ml from the CLI.

I’ve got various add-ons installed, mostly privacy focused. How would I debug this?

Thanks

Does private mode (plugins disabled) give you the same result? You can also try restarting Firefox in Safe Mode using

Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled to achieve this.

Yes, private mode with ublock, cookie auto delete, localcdn and deactivated noscript gives me the same result.

I don’t have the “restart without addons” option but would also like to try something else first if possible

And it works fine on other browsers?

This is a reasonably weird situation. I had lemmy.ml working on FF yesterday but it stopped when I tried to reply to a post.

Then it didn’t work on qutebrowser either, giving me a no server response.

Then it worked again. Sometimes with delay.

Just now I had this message on qutebrowser:

“Error while loading resource https://dev.lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/Q5Xs7Yu8kq.png?format=webp&thumbnail=96 on page https://lemmy.ml/: Server’s certificate does not match the URL. Consider reporting this to the website operator, or set content.tls.certificate_errors to ask-block-thirdparty to always block invalid resource loads. Do you want to ignore these errors and continue loading the page insecurely?”

After going the insecure way, the page loaded.

I’m on FreeBSD 13 and behind a VPN. So I dare say it’s probably me that’s causing the issue… but thought I’d share anyway. Mostly seems to work at the moment.

Mmmk those dev.lemmy.ml ones shouldn’t exist anymore.

I’ll see if I can fix these urls.

Thanks, didn’t know about the replying to old posts… Will keep it in mind. Cheers

It works fine on qutebrowser! Pinging works also without issues

Hrm, then ya it has to be either a plugin or cookie issue. I run ublock origin and a few others, so I’m not sure what it could be.

I agree, maybe just go to about:profiles and create a new “clean” profile and try it there

Not sure if this’ll do anything, but try: https://ccm.net/forum/affich-3788-connection-has-timed-out-firefox

Try a binary search. Turn off half of your plugins, then the other half, then narrow down until you find the culprit.
