Description

A few weeks ago it was fine, however now there is a problem with loading pages on nexusmods.com. For example:

www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/83467/

When you click on the tabs such as Files, Images, etc. the tab doesn't load and returns the letter "E"

I wonder if this is caused by a bug or some hardening feature in Tor Browser

Tested with Tor Browser 6.5.2 + Low Security Level

Switching tabs uses XHR which returns 403 Forbidden which what looks like a Cloudflare captcha page. This can be verified by using the Network tab in the Firefox Developer Tools and switching tabs.

Hm, this works for me in a freshly installed Tor Browser 6.5.2 on a 64bit Linux machine. How can I reproduce this?

Some possibilities:

  • Bug not reproducible on Linux
  • It is some kind of an IP ban, retrying with new circuit may help
  • You clicked the links at the top of the page (Files, Images, Videos ..) instead of the tabs that are at the middle (Desc, Files, Images, Posts ..)

Yep. I think that's what's going on. It works for me on the alphas but probably only as we need to solve a CAPTCHA right at the beginning. So, this will be fixed for some kind of "fixed" with the Tor Browser 7.0 release and is already in 7.0a4.
