Http redirecting to Https

I am having trouble accessing a site that doesn't support https. For the longest time, I could access it just fine through http, but now, for some reason, it redirects to https, no matter what I do, which just gives me a cloudflare error.

I can access it in other browsers by just editing the address to rather than

I'm aware others have encountered this issue, but the proposed solutions do not work for me at all.

I've tried: -Clearing my site security preferences file. -"Forgetting" the site through my history. -Disabling my addons -Disabling 'network.stricttransportsecurity.preloadlist' and 'browser.fixup.fallback-to-https' in my about:config. -Ensuring that https only mode is not on.

A Refresh DID fix it... only for it to break again pretty much immediately after I reloaded the site.

This is exceptionally annoying, as I have my Firefox configured how I want it, and I don't want to swap to another browser. Any solutions?

Did you try to create an 'Off' exception for HTTPS-Only via the padlock with HTTPS-Only enabled ?

Note that creating an HTTPS Only mode exception might not work if you have set network.trr.mode to 2 or 3 (0 or 1 should work) on the about:config page and Firefox insists in forcing HTTPS.
