You need to update your DNS records for docs.python.org. This is the old docs server.
My first thought was to do a
ipconfig /flushdns, but that didn't fix the problem.
I also determined that the it wasn't a cache at my local network nor ISP level... (both returns 188.8.131.52)
C:\>nslookup docs.python.org. Server: [INSTITUTION AD DNS SERVER - REMOVED] Address: [REMOVED] Non-authoritative answer: Name: c.global-ssl.fastly.net Address: 184.108.40.206 Aliases: docs.python.org C:\>nslookup docs.python.org. 220.127.116.11 Server: google-public-dns-a.google.com Address: 18.104.22.168 Non-authoritative answer: Name: c.global-ssl.fastly.net Address: 22.214.171.124 Aliases: docs.python.org
I have the Flagfox extension installed and it's showing
126.96.36.199 as the address as well.
Ctrl-F5 to refresh did not work either.
The weirdest thing is when I accessed the same address in Chrome, it worked (redirected me to https://docs.python.org/3/)
What's up with this?! How can I fix this?
Since Chrome works and the IP is obviously the same as Google's DNS server, I assume this is caused by a Firefox internal DNS cache and the Flagfox address displayed is resolved separately and not the actual address used to contact the server.
