I only use Safari so I do not know if this happens in other browsers.

 

 

 

Recently and randomly, I have had instances where I write replies to topics and click post. Then I get a page of mostly grey with "Safari Cannot Open Page" and "Reason: could not parse response" then a load of gobbledygook that would probably mean something to someone expert in such matters but it won't let you copy it to paste it here.

 

I have no idea what it is and GZ is the only place I have seen it so far.

I also use only Safari - usually on iPad but also frequently on a MacBook. I’ve never experienced this issue.

 

However I have seen quite frequent Captcha requests recently but I guess that’s a different issue.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

I am a Safari user and haven't experienced this either.

A screenshot next time this happens will help. Having said that, Geekzone pages are pretty standard HTML with a few scripts and should work fine in pretty much every modern browser - unless some extension interferes with the page.

Are you running ESET or other AV?

Is the Web filter enabled? I suspect it is adding its own stuff to pages being visited.

Yes. For example some AV software have a "web filter" that checks all your web traffic for malware. This means the filter decrypts (or tries to) traffic using a local certificate and add some stuff. I read that some people were having problems with ESET doing it on Mac and adding an extra request header, causing this kind of problem you are seeing.

Think of the website administrators that have to put up with end users emailing advising the website is crap / broken and it is something the end user has installed breaking it

Think of all the users installing stuff the makers tell them won't break stuff....

There is nothing obvious. Standard AV and anti-ransomware. There is a traffic light system for web protection but it is not enabled.
