textures.com stopped working

Post by vershner » 2021-05-11, 21:20

At some point in the last month, textures.com has stopped working with Palemoon. The front page loads but any other page, including the library, shows "Service unavailable! We will be back soon." Seems to work normally with Firefox and Chrome. Used to work fine with Palemoon.

I tired various different user agents but that made no difference.
I tested Palemoon on Windows 7, 10, and on MX Linux. Same result.
I am on 29.2.0.

Have you tried filing a bug report to the webmasters?

Unfortunately looking at the console gives nothing but an error in what I presume is a third-party package, so everything's on them, assuming they can do something in the first place.

An admin from the site replied, saying that Palemoon doesn't support the CSP directive "prefetch-src".

That isn't the cause of this problem.
Disabling CSP results in the same on-page errors, so it is by definition not a CSP issue.

Yeah, I looked up prefetch-src on caniuse.com and developer.mozilla.org, and apparently no browsers support that yet.

I've gone back to the admin and asked for more detail. Hopefully he'll be able to provide something more useful.

Makes one wonder why it was made part of a policy applied to a production system, eh? ;-)

It is rather odd!

Nothing further from the admin. He just says that's the only error he can see.

Well that's the error I've seen in my console too.
But the webmaster has access to server-side logs that SHOULD give them more information since it's clear an error is thrown somewhere.
