Many sites that I try to access wont load up and I get a ‘dns_probe_possible’ message. The site then usually loads up automatically by itself after a few seconds. There’s no pattern to this. Some days it hardly happens and other days it happens constantly.
It’s difficult to reproduce as it’s not consistent. Using the browser in private mode doesn’t prevent it either - so it’s not the extensions. Turning the dns settings in the browser off/on makes no difference. Using ISP or 3rd party dns in router settings makes no difference. Using different shield options, or even disabling shield, doesn’t fix it.
This only happens on the windows desktop browser for me (1.29.79), and has been the case for several months now. I also use brave on my android phone and have no issues like this at all.
