Avast blocking random Bulbapedia page, how to fix
« on: December 20, 2022, 07:53:25 PM »
So I was just browsing Bulbapedia when I tried to got to the page for the Flying type [https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Flying_(type)] and Avast popped up a message saying it blocked the connection.

Now I can't get to the page, it just says the site can't be reached every time I try and it's not an issue with Bulbapedia.

How do I fix this?

I'm running Avast Free and can open the page just fine.

Yes, but it blocked it once for me and now won't let it load.

How did you get to that weird URL string as it does alert, bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Flying_(type), as it doesn't appear legit
See attached screenshot.

Just using bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/ without the weird string opens just fine, see attachment 2.

I got the same as DavidR. Perhaps there's a weird bug/issue with the "flying" page.
