For some reason, audiogames.net just stopped working on Firefox. I can visit the site using Chrome, but Firefox, in both safe, private, and normal modes gives me the following error:

probalby they are denying it to you because of firefoxes useragent string

One of the best gifts on this earth is the unconditional love of an animal

It is pure, free of judgement, and raises me to the utter height of glory.

Clowdflare's at it again. Get the useragent string switcher addon and switch your useragent to that of firefox 56 or above.

I'm the only adventure at c: master hahahaha I have unlocked just about everything!

Wow, you're right. Thank you!
I changed my useragent string to Chrome/66.0.3359.181 and it worked perfectly!
Apparently my useragent string is currently blank and I only have a rawUa which is:
rawUa: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0

I'll see if I can fix this. why would audiogames.net exclude a site because of its useragent string?

You don't need to get an addon, you can just follow this guide:

Firefox 56 is:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0

it rejected you, because you're using what they consider to be an outdated firefox. I had the same issue with windows CE devices. changing the user agent fixed it for me.

Again, questions about the site not working belong in site and forum feedback so I'm moving this topic.

Internet explorer versions below 11 have a similar problem. Unfortunately its not actually the site, but the cloud flare host that is causing the issue here so there isn't too much that can be done at this end.

With our dreaming and singing, Ceaseless and sorrowless we! The glory about us clinging Of the glorious futures we see,
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)

I'm on the latest firefox and it works perfectly fine, firefox is actually quite fast. Win 10 x64, v 1803, NVDA v 2018.2. Although I guess a reason to stay on older builds was I heard that a lot of extensions broke. All I've got and need is uBlock right now.

An anomaly in the matrix. An error in existence. A being who cannot get inside the goddamn box! A.K.A. Me.

Google sheets broke, you can't switch between multiple sheets in the latest Firefox. That makes it empossible for me to use as 50% of my time is spent on GSheets.

I'd love to see where firefox is faster than chrome, but I'm yet to find a place, where it is. firefox 60 just kills my fans, and slows things down. give me chrome with add block plus, and I'll be happy.
