        I have upgraded to Safari Preview 87.

         

        Working perfectly well on my MacBook Pro.

         

        I did the same on iMac.

        I can browse anywhere on the web, but when I try to access any forum site (such as https://forums.developer.apple.com/community/xcode/swift), I get the error:

         

        Not Found

        The item does not exist. It may have been deleted.

         

        If I try to access https://forums.developer.apple.com/welcome

        I get it right, seeing the full list of forum topics.

        If I click a topic (e.g. Core OS), I see the list of subtopics

        But if I click a topic, I get the error message.

        Even when I select a topic I have never visited (so, does not look like a cache issue)

         

        The MBP is on the same network.

        On iMac, I can acess thorugh Safari

          I assume you're attempting to feedback on STP/WK, not the forum (that would be JIVE Software)

           

          Pls. note we can report issues directly to Apple via STPs Help menu, and for WK, see the WebKit Blog, and related bug reporter, thanks.

              Yes, that's STP 87.

               

              I justcleaned the caches, no change.

               

              I'll file a bug. Thanks

                  What is strange as well, is that I can access a specific thread (like this one) in STP87.

                  I am writing this post from there.

                  If I click 'Content' or 'Search', it works OK.

                  But clicking on 'Developer forum' leads to the error page.

                   

                  I filed a bug report Jul 14, 2019 at 3:52 PM – FB6667770

                   

                  I noticed an alert in the page source (I have the same on MBP, but that does not block access):

                   

                  The page at https://forums.developer.apple.com/community/xcode/swift contains a form which targets an insecure URL http://developer.apple.com/search/index.php.

                   

                  Is it possible that forum software does not follow Apple's rules ?

                   

                  on line (just the beginning of the code in page source here)

                      Can you find the STP menu (developer/experimental features) that let's you enable webgl? If so, does it make any difference?

                       

                           >Is it possible that forum software does not follow Apple's rules ?

                       

                      Follow? My opinion is that the forum package is completely blind to most anything relating to apple products, much less tech previews/seeds. JIVE's products are primarily Windows-centric.

                       

                      Have some fun... Search their site for: safari ...and see what comes back.

                          I selected WebGL 2.0 to get it checkmarked.

                           

                          No change.

                           

                          I checked with the MBP set up: they have exactly the same settings in experimental features, and it works on MBP.

                           

                          I am now convinced there is a bug in the forum code, with form requesting http vs https.

                           

                          Real fun, Safari is unsupported Browser for the software that runs the developers' forum.

                          Some have been kicked out of developers' program for less than that.

                              I think the technical term for that is ''ing shame', but yeps, Apple can settle for less, but if devs compromise, we'll hear about it every time.

                               

                              Hard to listen to Apple's pushback when what should serve as an example is simply another indication of how little devs actually matter. Guy Kawasaki [ h ttps://guykawasaki.com ] used to call that eating your own dog food - Tim should have Guy back, at least for a few lectures to the groups devs deal with. I haven't talked w/him for a while...time to send an email and see how he's doing, I think.

                              Thanks for the follow up.
