Default The connection has timed out (Firefox workaround)

Warning! This workaround will allow Firefox users to browse and shop Warehouse23 http (non-secure https).

When accessing Warehouse23 Firefox users might receive the "The connection has timed out" error. No, the Warehouse23 server is not busy. Warehouse23 has non-secure elements, images, links, etc., which causes the connection time out error.

To work around this issue:
  1. Go to "Settings"
  2. select "Privacy and Security" tab
  3. search for "HTTPS-Only Mode"
  4. select "Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows"

If that doesn't resolve the problem. In addition, try:
  1. Go to "General"
  2. find "Connection Settings"
  3. select either "Use system proxy settings" or "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network"
If successful, a page displaying "HTTPS-Only Mode Alert," "Secure Connection Not Available" will be visible. Now proceed to "Continue to HTTP Site."

Firefox users may reverse these settings after accessing Warehouse23 if they wish to do so.

I've used Firefox for decades, and have never had an issue.

Hm. Currently https://www.warehouse23.com/ is doing a 302 to http://www.warehouse23.com/, which is not something that it should be doing (it should be doing the opposite).

I just tried it, and it's still doing what you said. And I agree, it shouldn't be. I'll let someone at SJGames know (although they may not get the message until after 2022 Jan. 1).
