The website is not available - ERR_SOCKS_CONNECTION_FAILED


#1

Hello,
I’m experiencing a strange problem. When I open a page, I often get the following error message:

The website is unavailable The website at https://www.deepl.com/ may be temporarily unavailable or has been permanently moved to a new web address.
ERR_SOCKS_CONNECTION_FAILED

Either the page loads itself after the error message, or I have to update manually.

It happens a lot, and it’s definitely very annoying.

I’m not seeing this issue:

I assume you’re located outside of the US, is that correct for both of you (@MediaBird and @jasonsmith)?

Sorry, I didn’t describe the problem well enough. It happens not only at Deepl.com, but at all sites. It doesn’t always happen either.


#5

Any site you try to visit gives you the port connection error?


#6

I wasn’t watching that closely.

Maybe I should add that I use the Hide.me VPN extension. Maybe that’s the reason?
hide.me Proxy - Chrome Web Store

The problem no longer occurs.
