How to unlock Palemoon to open Leboncoin.fr

Hi team

I used to use Palemoon because I need some legacy Firefox Addons.

Here is the website to test: https://www.leboncoin.fr

From last month, the website have blocked access when I use such old Firefox based browsers : login infinity loop (right part of the header)

:arrow: Facts :
I tried with Firefox v52 ... v55. I'm still blocked.
I tried with a new fresh installation of Palemoon, Basilisc, Waterfox. I'm still blocked.
I tried Firefox 78, the website works, no problem.
I tried Vivaldi, Brave, Opera (Chrome based browsers), the website works, no problem.

:arrow: I would like to understand what techno this site uses for this kind of blocking:
- user-agent ? I tried to modify it but it does not solve the problem

Could you help me also how to remove this blockage?


Thanks a lot

If they are blocking you based on IP address there's nothing you can do about it.

There is nothing you can do about it via Pale Moon, but you can use proxy servers or a VPN, maybe also TOR works if they don't block the exit nodes's addresses.

Yeah, I meant in that context. Using a VPN etc to access a site that actively blocks your IP is beyond the scope of what this forum is for.

If that were the case would not all browsers be blocked from accessing the site.
I was going to suggest the OP searches for the site via startpage and usde the anonymous search to see if that brings any joy.

I think the OP means that actually trying to use a function that requires a login doesn't work because they changed their login to require Chrome regex stuff, afaict.
Right now there's no immediate solution for that but it is what we're actively working on right now in the platform.

Okay, you can access it, but you can't operate it with.
