Blocked by cloudflare on repo when using online editor

Post by micwoj92 » 2021-01-12, 23:13

I wanted to update https://repo.palemoon.org/MoonchildProd ... Dialog.xul (on my fork)
but when I want to push change with code i get cloudflare error.

It only blocks access to this function then, accessing rest of the website is normal.

Pushing changes without code works normally https://repo.palemoon.org/micwoj92/Pale ... 979fe9b992


The line I wanted to change is 63, so it does not mention GitHub

Code: Select all

or getting involved in our development by tackling some of the issues found in our <label class="text-link" href="https://repo.palemoon.org/MoonchildProductions/Pale-Moon/issues/">issue tracker</label>.

CF overzealous protection rules are overzealous. Try pushing from a local clone and not using the web editor.
Is it that you have no idea where you are going or what you're supposed to be doing right now?
Or did you just assume when you saw that timer that something in this room is capable of turning it off?

Yeah I'm getting tired of these "cloudlfare specials"; I checked the rules in effect and most of them are safeguards for people making XSS-vulnerable front-end websites to begin with which really doesn't apply to us.
I've disabled that particular ruleset now as it has too many false positives.

PS: I used the update you wanted to do as a test, so... the update has been done ;P

Thanks Moonchild!

Yes I will definitely do that when I will (hopefully) start contributing some bigger changes. Still a beginner :P

Well those CF protections are a lifesaver depending on what you are running them in front of. Especially for some of the more mainstream longstanding fucked over web application projects eg the wordpress. But for others like those I code up and Gitea they are more of a hindrance. But one can't know that unless it is tried for a while.

Tried it, wasn't productive, and Moonchild switched it off. No big story here nor one of foul.

I had already manually disabled about 10 rules in the set; i just reviewed all of them now and certainly not something we need here.
And you can be angry with CF about this but I think that's an overreaction; as stated it's a good thing to have if you know nothing and run risky off-the-shelf stuff that is known for its exploits or are subject to the whims of Indian "web designers" you got on-the-cheap who know nothing about web security. At least CF gives full control over what to enable or disable, but yes, it does take some time to know what gets in the way and what helps.
