Tumbleweed: a website no longer loading.

The website http://wxcharts.eu/ has not been working today in Chromium,
Firefox, and Opera. However, it does work with Qupzilla. It just
displays the page heading with a box below which flashes “loading” for a
while then stops. This site only stopped working this morning. Something
hinky in the 20170331 TW snapshot?

It does work on my iPad (Safari) and Windows 10 (Edge and FF) although
it seems a bit slower than usual in loading on both.

Hi
Just tried here with FF 52.0.1 in Tumbleweed 20170331 (Gnome Shell),
works fine and all images load up… Not an ad-blocker or such?

Try a test user, does it duplicate?

De-activated the ad-blocker - no change.

Test user didn’t duplicate so I tried removing cookies. On FF, removing
those for wxcharts.eu fixed the problem. On Chromium, it seemed to me
that I could only clear all cookies - that will cause some
inconveniences for a while - and that also worked.

Not as weird as the last time something similar happened - fixed by
getting a new router.

Anyway, thanks for the useful hints.

Recommend clearing the web cache <completely> in your web browser.
In fact, nowadays and if you have a broadband connection you should set your cache size as tiny as possible.

Thanks for that advice even though that didn’t appear to be the cause of
the problem here as clearing cookies sorted the problem. However, I’ll
see about changing settings as per your suggestion; 100Mbps download
speed wouldn’t seem to make a large cache particularly vital. :wink:

Puzzled that Chromium doesn’t seem to include opportunity for clearing
individual cookies when its “settings” page is so similar to Opera’s -
who copied whom? - where there is an option to do just that.
