the problem I have is annoying me since many months now! That’s why I’ve registered here for help…
It is kinda similiar to this one, but the “solution” does not work for me:
my exact problem description:
when opening a new website, the loading bar is stuck right after beginning to load the website, for at least 3 seconds - sometimes more. I think around 10 seconds is max.
this happens especially when I am not at home. means, when I am using mobile data (LTE).
I have a Samsung Galaxy S10 SM-G973F/DS, Android 11, stock ROM (Deutsche Telekom version), latest available update (Security Patch Level 1. March 2021).
As far as I can remember, this problem came with Blokada V5. I tried a downgrade to V4, which fixed this specific V5 problem, but came with a new one: after some days without reboot, some apps (even exempted) were unable to connect to the Internet (e.g. Playstore). even turning off Blokada didn’t fix that - only a reboot of my mobile.
anyway, back to the V5 Problem:
I got the APK from here, and at least one update from Samsung Appstore.
The one I got installed now was downloaded by Blokada itself.
Currently it is v5.12.0 (android 30 full release arm64-v8a).
I know it has something to do with Secure DNS, because it happens also with no active filter list.
I tried all these options in every constellation I could think of:
Blokada Settings (global and/or per network)
-secure DNS on/off
-different DNS, including some which don’t support secure DNS at all
-prefer network DNS on/off
Chrome security settings (currently Chrome v90.0.4430.210):
-use secure DNS on/off
-use current DNS
-use specific DNS
sometimes it seemed to be fixed and I thought YES! but just a bit later the problem was back.
this bugs me since quite some months now.
the only 100% “solution” for this problem I found, is turning Blokada off completely.
I hope someone got a solution for this issue!
