ExtensionStore empty

Postby grizzler » Wed Jul 20, 2022 12:50 pm

I've just downloaded ExtensionsStore v4.2.9 so I can get my Fredo6 license and it just comes up blank. I've restarted SU and turned off my VPN but it just remains blank for a while and then says " Navigation to web page was cancelled". If I then click on "refresh page" it says "This site is not secure. This might mean that someone’s trying to fool you or steal any info you send to the server. You should close this site immediately." - Any suggestions?

Everything else is working fine for me, my connection is stable and decent speed.

This site is not secure. This might mean that someone’s trying to fool you or steal any info you send to the server. You should close this site immediately


We have a valid SSL certificate...



...and your message is suggesting it is accessing an unsecure URL. Have you tried clearing your cookies and cache from your browser/s and retrying?

You should not get that message. Are you using a VPN or strict Firewall?

Sounds like an over-zealous virus tool's firewall that is blocking the site.
Obviously the thousands of members using it have no issues...
Over certificates etc are up to date.
Has something changed with your set up recently ?
Have you checked to see where you can 'white-list' the site ?
The two that need access are
sketchucation.com
plugin.sketchucation.com
in particular the
https://plugin.sketchucation.com/pluginstore_4.php

Rich's cache deletion is a good idea, but note how it relates to the cache used by IE/Edge [Internet Options] and not anything else used by another default web-browser...

It doesn't seem to be my browser but it might be my firewall, it's blocked the following today and I'm wondering whether it might be what I need - I don't want to whitelist it without knowing though:

Device Association Framework Provider Host
Remote Address: 239.255.255.250

What do you think?

I just deactivated my firewall and tried again but I still get blocked

I don't know what that IP address is but its not us. Our IP is...

Code: Select all
144.76.69.227 (static.227.69.76.144.clients.your-server.de)

Finally! It has taken me 24 hours of disabling and enabling everything I can, numerous restarts, cache clearances etc, and the thing that finally worked was to enable my VPN and set it to a US server, suddenly all my problems were solved! I've no idea why this worked but it did and I'm not going to question it in case I jinx it
