XF 1.4 Image Proxy Failing in Random Instances


Active member
I recently switched a site over to SSL and enabled the link/image proxies, but am having an issue where the image proxy is randomly failing.


The second (working) image and the third (broken) image are both gif links from giphy.com, but the proxy link failed to work for the third image.

The data-urls for both links are both correct and work fine. Any ideas why the Image Proxy failed in this instance? (There are other cases across the site as well)

It failed here as well, so I imagine that's the problem? Is it a matter of it taking too long for the proxy to fetch? Is there a setting I can tweak to solve this?
There are size limits and time limits. The size limit you can tweak via "Image Cache Max Size". The download time limit you can't change and is to prevent certain attacks.
