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 http://xyz.com rather than https://xyz.com.

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.
