I’m experiencing an issue that happens recently only on chrome on mobile. When i type any link starting with http:// it gets auto redirected to https:// although im forcing redirect all https to http so it ends up getting error too many redirects. When i tried to pause CF on my site, i no longer get that error and http protocol functions normally. So, any tips how to resolve this issue while keeping CF enabled on my site?
Other options like “HSTS”, “Automatic HTTPS Rewrites” and “Always Use HTTPS” are also disabled at Cloudflare dashboard → SSL → Edge Certificates?
May I ask have you tried using a different Web browser, or tried clearing your Web browser cache?
How about using a Private window (Incognito mode) or a VPN connection if possible?
Is it the same behaviour on your mobile phone (4G LTE, mobile data, cellular)?
Today’s standards are quite good and secure. Unfortunately, there are some services which might require using insecure setup and a HTTP.
That’s also available for other Web browsers too nowadays, especially if you are using an option like “HTTPS-only”, from what it means you cannot open any HTTP website, only HTTPS.
They might do default HTTP to HTTPS redirection, or throw some warning, if so.

No, it’s flexible and http worked fine for years using these settings. This issue only started a few days only on chrome mobile but other browsers don’t redirect to https including chrome on PC and yes i tried on private (incognito mode but still having the same issue).
I am seeing the same thing with Chrome 104.
We use SSL for specific things but only a few URLS are allowed, the rest redirect to http and all of a sudden when proxied through CF Chrome will decide to only use HTTPS.
Like @eng_eg11 said, this was working fine for years and its only changed recently.
