Intermittent issues with NYTimes iOS app
Intermittently, individual sections stop loading in the NYTimes iOS app. I disabled all the Privacy blocklists, but it didn’t solve the problem. Examining the logs, and whitelisting individual domains didn’t provide any insights.
The sections load if I disable NextDNS.
I’m unsure if this is a bug, or related to a setting.
My next step will be to disable NextDNS (when this behavior starts up again) and use Wireshark to analyze the traffic when my phone loads the NYTimes.com sections so I can better analyze the NextDNS logs.
I wish the NextDNS would show which first-party domain made the third-party (off-site) request.
I’ve attached an animated gif of how the NYTimes app behaves when I attempt to load a section.
