Web page check
« on: 14 April, 2021, 04:00:21 pm »
Hi

Can someone check the following web page for me please:

https://www.metabo.com/uk/en/info/news/specials/battery-redemption-offers-2021/

Its supposed to have a from on it to claim a free battery but on my PCs all I get is a white background at the bottom of the page. Tried Linux and Windows with Firefox and Edge and both the same.
I want to know if its something weird here or a general fault on the Metabo web site. Thanks.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Works for me on IE and win 10, but not Chrome (with UBlock) on the same machine.

Intersting. Just tried IE in a VM and I get an error where the form should be:

This page can’t be displayed

•Make sure that the web address http://web-ma.metabo.com is correct.
•Look for the page with your search engine.
•Refresh the page in a few minutes

Looks like an insecure form that the browsers are blocking.

I think the problem is mixed http/https. Using Linux/Firefox I don't see the form, but if I use about:config and toggle security.mixed_content.block_active_content the form appears.

Bingo. Now it tries to load the form but fails with a DNS error. I think google DNS may be teh issue now.

And switching to Open DNS from Google fixed it.

So two part problem:

Mixed HTTP and HTTPS as Philip pointed out and then something weird with Google DNS.

Thanks all.
