When I visit the f-droid website, my browser offers me to save a file with a random name. I cannot view the website at all. Any hints?

    I don’t know if this useful, but the link works in the UK… I would be interested to hear if you have any luck with it, sorry I can’t be any use beyond this.

    I had the thought of trying a VPN set to other countries if you can, or different DNS settings, but I imagine you already thought of it but can’t think of much else.

    Best of luck with it :)

      \Tada!..

      It suddenly is working. I didn’t change a thing.

      @[email protected] suggested I get suspicious about my country or ISP. Should I worry, now?!.. :-(

      Seriously, did the f-droid folks change anything on their end?

        That’s bizarre! Glad it’s working, but what the Dickens made it behave so strangely? I imagine it wouldn’t be anything nefarious, especially since its only fdroid, but… Damn that’s odd!

        Glad it solved itself at last :)

      I tried to use some webproxy to test other locations and had the same result - only difference is the name offered for the file to download.

      Thanks.
