Chaturbate URLs don't send back a title when shortened, and behave funkily #2529
I build a private url shorten service for myself with the newest code~~
https:// xxxx.com /in/?track=default&tour=LQps&campaign=GfeR8&room=testaff
Here is a very strange thing:
1: It don't work this this "chaturbate" domain
2: If change the the domain to others, such as Google or Youtube or something else, it works!
I think that's because the page sends an X-XSS-Protection header that prevents from accessing the URL from a shortener (that's mostly useless and dumb). Or maybe it's another header they send/
Interestingly, the shortened URL behaves funnily: works for me if I click it with left button but not if I mid-click it to another tab: http://yourls.org/e8. This behavior seems to be browser dependant.
Anyway, I don't know. Leaving this open if anyone wants to dig in.
This is a common behavior for ad blockers. They prevent accessing some domains when opened in a new tab (i.e. not a direct access).
Ad blockers may be the "issue" for the whole report. Can you check @moonsbtt?
