Modhub doesn't work with Brave browser

Post by bit » Sun Jun 28, 2020 9:58 am

Hi there,

Just reporting that Modhub doesn't work with Brave browser. I get "403 Forbidden".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brave_(web_browser)

I think this could be because Brave doesn't pass through referrer with privacy settings turned on, and your download server probably only accepts sessions with a valid referrer to prevent hot linking. Perhaps you can find another way..?

Thought I'd check myself, but for clarity while the ModHub pages work fine with Brave, the 403 error only appears when trying to download mods.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I can confirm it's just the download feature that doesn't work with Brave.
