Is anyone else having trouble getting through this site's DoS protection in the last few months?

Something in my prefs.js is resulting in it just endlessly reloading the DoS checker page. It works if I clear out all the user set prefs starting with "dom." and then restart with purgecaches, but I have been unable to narrow it down further -

EDIT Never mind, testing again I found it was caused by dom.enable_resource_timing being set to false. Reset it to true and no more problem.

I'll leave this post here for reference in case someone else has this problem, I seem to recall this problematic setting was following recommendation of somewhere prominent as an anti-fingerprinting measure. Can't remember where I saw this pref change recommended and not finding it now, but searching did turn up that other people have this same issue with other Cloudflare DoS protection pages.

Thanks fatboy. I think I need to review my about:config customisations in light of that section.
