Encoding error when accessing https://codidact.com/

+1
−0

When trying to access https://codidact.com/ Firefox (93.0) gives me "encoding error, contact the site owners". This appears to have happened just now, as I could use that address fine for less than an hour ago. I can access any community just fine, not just the main URL, so I don't think it's some DNS hiccup.

https://www.codidact.com also works, but https://codidact.com is no longer working.

EDIT 2:

Tried with a different computer and ISP, same browser, and it is working just fine there. So perhaps it is a DNS issue after all... I'm using Google's DNS on the computer where it works.

EDIT 3:

The error message (freely translated to English, since Firefox uses local language):

Content Encoding Error

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.

I did some further research and it appears that this was caused by corrupted cookies/browser cache in Firefox.

I deleted all Codidact cookies, restarted the browser and now the problem is gone.
