as the subject said, i am currently in a situation where any site “protected” by cloudflare is unusable : i am redirected to the “Checking your browser before accessing…” page, which reloads in a loop and cannot go past this stage.
the loop is a 503 which i believe is the normal behavior, followed by a script named v1, and then a couple of apparently identical pages with gibberish like names and contents… and back to 503.
the browser is a rather outdated firefox 66. i do have cookies and js enabled. i tried to disable possibly conflicting extensions such as ghostery or bluehell without success. anyway, everything worked normally ( though increasingly annoyingly due to the use of rcaptcha ) previously.
chromium on the same computer works normally. i have to fill the captcha too often imho, though. but i assume this is the normal behavior.
i have a number of clients using cloudflare services who reported issues with cloudflare a number of times which i dismissed in most cases as issues with the user.
i do believe running outdated browser versions SHOULD most definitely work unless there is an obvious security issue.
what do you think can be the issue ?
i need to debug this so i can determine whether my FF has an actual specificity that messes things up or cloudflare expects folks to use the latest version of a major browser. in the latter case, i need to stop using cf alltogether.
thanks for sharing your thoughts
