Brave always give ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED for web.archive.org

Been going at least a few months now. I am unable to access the wayback machine at web.archive.org using brave on my samsung galaxy note 8 n950u (brave version 1.0.95) for some reason. It works fine using other mobile browsers on this device

The error message is:

#This site can’t be reached

web.archive.org unexpectedly closed the connection.

Try:

  • Checking the connection

ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED

I have an old kindle fire running brave 1.0.95 (android version 5) that web.archive.org works fine on. So the issue seems to be device specific.

Just to be clear. This is issue only occurs with web.archive.org, not archive.org. archive.org works fine.

Mobile Device details Samsung Galaxy Note 8 N950U

Android/iOS Version 9

Additional Information: issue is device specific. Error persists with all shields turned off

@JTBHripper Thanks for reporting. It’s working fine on my Samsung Galaxy J3 as you mentioned it could be device sepecific issue. Can you chang the shield settings and try whether it works or not?

Thanks!

Same thing happens with all the shields off. I just noticed though that other web.archive.org links seem to work fine

like web.archive.org/*/timecube.com

and

http://web.archive.org/web/20140116231854/http://timecube.com/

Those both work fine

But web.archive.org just won’t connect for some reason
