I recently upgraded to Feature Parity Release 30 (SPR 1). Now, when I try to connect to www.thecollegefix.com I get "404 Not Found" with "nginx" below.

I can access the website with no problem from my Leopard Webkit version of Safari.

    Confirmed. The server at www.thecollegefix.com deliberately sends an incorrect response when it sees our useragent string. Weird.

    Solution (for now): Go to Preferences > TenFourFox and choose
    'Select user agent string to use: Firefox 52ESR (Intel)'.

    Wow! Thanks for the info. It's an easy fix. I stopped using alternate
    user agent strings because they seemed to produce unpredictable
    results with certain websites. I'll experiment with this if I run into
    similar problems in the future.
