    What is Safari in IOS doing compared to Firefox on Android when visiting a website.

    Screen Shot :

    Screen shot shows Safari looking for files that Firefox doesn’t.
    So Safari gets blocked, wheres the Firefox user is happy to browse.

    Is this a Wordfence issue or Safari doing what it thinks is best?

    Hi @chook,

    Wordfence is blocking the connection because of too many 404 requests.

    I suspect this is caused by the So Widget Bundle plugin.
    They make requests to different CSS files based on the browser.

    The CSS file that Safari is being asked to download does not exist.
    Can you ask the author of the So Widget Bundle for assistance?

    In the meantime, you can choose to disable blocking people based on 404 pages:

    1. Go to Wordfence -> All Options
    2. Search for If a human's pages not found
    3. Change it to a higher value, such as 15 per minute or 30 per minute
    4. Save Changes

    For example:


    Thanks Dave,
    I’ll reach out to them guys.
