Printing greyed out in Gmail (and Gmail thinks it is offline)
I don't know why, but since today (March 30, 2021) printing in Gmail is greyed out, when I'm connected via an internet connection using NextDNS. Using other connections, this does not happen.
Currently I've got no white or blacklists, all security block lists are active, under the privacy tab I have all native tracking protections on and under blocklists only the "NextDNS Ads & Tracker Blocklist" is active .
I'm using the German version of the site, so I hope I translated the terms correctly
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Update: I just realized that Gmail sometimes thinks it is offline as well. I'm using it via other connections simultaneously and don't have this problem there.
First you can try to replicate without using NextDNS (126.96.36.199 for example)... do not forget to "ipconfig /flushdns". If the problem is the same then its not NextDNS.
Then you would need to peek into the log for that timeframe, see what has been blocked... allowlist it and do "ipconfig /flushdns" thing... test again. Then disable allowlisted one by one, do the flushdns, retest to find the problematic deny(s).
Let us know how it goes, and which one is the problematic.
My understanding is too shallow, but this is quite interesting:
If I change my connection from WIFI with NextDNS to LTE (via my phone) without NextDNS the change is immediate.
The NextDNS website instantly complains that I'm not using NextDNS and the printing icon in Gmail works.
No need to flush any caches.
On the other hand: If I block and unblock a site via NextDNS I'll get the green "this site is no longer blocked" even though I cleared my DNS cache. Meh
Just a heads up for Greg Burns, crssi and everyone else stumbling upon this thread: As of today, Gmail works fine again. I did not change anything at my NextDNS settings.
So to conclude: Everything worked fine, Gmail suddenly stopped working and now I'm back to fine.
All without a single reply from NextDNS staff.
