What are you doing RIGHT NOW?

I've been having a really bizarre problem with my internet lately. Some websites only appear to be loading "partially". SoFurry is a good example of this. If I go to SF, the site loads, and it's technically functional, but none of the graphics will load, so it's just lines of text. But once I open one of the unloaded images in a new tab (after I solve a captcha) and refresh, then it goes back to normal. Any new images that show up (like new submissions) still refuse to load, though. The same thing happens in other places, like certain manga readers and anime sites.

I don't know if this is relevant or not, but the only sites that seem to be affected are the ones that ask you to solve a Cloudflare captcha to get in. You know, the ones that ask you to pick out boats, trains, busses and planes? That one.

I looked it up, and the only advice I could find was to turn off proxy settings, but that didn't change anything.

This isn't a major problem or anything, 90% of the websites I use still work normally, but it is kinda annoying, and I have no way of knowing if this might get worse. Does anybody know what's going on?

I've had that sort of thing. I figured it was because I'm weird with cookies and java and stuff. I think it's because things are loading from different places, e.g. The site is sofurry.com but the thumbnails are coming from sofurryfiles.com. So the different domains have separate Cloudflare and won't always be in sync. If you go to the image in a new tab, it forces that Cloudflare to load correctly and fixes the problem. I had it a couple weeks back when I guess my cookies expired. A bunch of sites stopped loading properly and I had to open a couple images on their own to get the domains working.

Did your problem just go away after a while? Because I've had this since Friday.

For me it only lasted a short while and I think got fixed once I loaded the domains individually. But it was all the Cloudflare sites at the same time.
