I'm using my PC for local web development. I use Firefox as my regular browser and recently, in order to distinguish between personal time and development time, I've established a new profile just for development purposes.
The local website I can't reach is "site.local.dev". My OS is Ubuntu 20.04 and that URL points to a local IP on my network (resolved via /etc/hosts file on my PC).
Funny thing is that:
- In dev-profile: site.local.dev does not work => "Unable to connect" and the URL bar shows https://site.local.dev even if I force it to http://
- In personal-profile: site.local.dev does work :P
I have tried with CLI tools like "wget", "hosts", "ping", "telnet" and so on and the site loads ok. Even I have used Dillo (damn simple web browser) and the site loads ok also.
Things I've tried so far:
- Suggestions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can
- Suggestions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1011327 (similar issue, not exactly the same).
It must be a silly thing but I'm out of options now. Perhaps anybody has faced to this situation in the past: any suggestion on this issue?.
Thanks in advance, Ibon.
