Change of error description after turn off firewall

I could not open a stack anymore from my website after the host moved it to a new faster server.
Just by testing found out that disabling the Windows Firewall can give a better error description in LC.

With below simple script trying to get a piece of script:

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
go url ""
answer the result
end mouseUp
With Firewall ON this error is given:
With Firewall OFF this error is given:
Now we're getting somewhere.

Solution was to renew the Let's Encrypt Certificate, allthough there was plenty of time left before renewal.
Please, stop quoting things my brother did not say. Thank you. Hans Zweistein.
