Diff between Chrome ext and Mac stand alone


#1

The Chrome extension version 5.5.4 works but comes with a warning of deprecation.
The Mac stand alone version 6.5.2 does not work.
Here is the call I’m trying to make:
https://adsbexchange.com/api/aircraft/json/lat/37.16611/lon/-119.44944/dist/50/

The Chrome ext returns:
{
“ac”: [
{
“postime”: “1543429612532”,
“icao”: “A8090D”,
“reg”: “N617DC”,

“gnd”: “”,
“trt”: “2”,
“pos”: “1”,
“mlat”: “0”,
“tisb”: “0”,
“mil”: “0”
}
]
}
The Mac returns:
Could not get any response

There was an error connecting to https://adsbexchange.com/api/aircraft/json/lat/47.621354/lon/-122.353957/dist/10/.

Why this might have happened:

  • The server couldn’t send a response:

Ensure that the backend is working properly

  • Self-signed SSL certificates are being blocked:

Fix this by turning off ‘SSL certificate verification’ in Settings > General

  • Proxy configured incorrectly

Ensure that proxy is configured correctly in Settings > Proxy

  • Request timeout:

Change request timeout in Settings > General

I tried all the suggestions listed in the response and nothing helps.
