I tried to access a website in Germany yesterday using Firefox and the browser kept getting "stuck on" http://rtb0.doubleverify.com.

It's website I look at about once a day for years now, never had that problem before.
Tried accessing it a few times always with the same message, something like "waiting for http://rtb0.doubleverify.com"

Then this morning everything is fine again.

All I could find out so far that the server for this site is in Ireland - so maybe the routing went through that server.
But if the server is down or doesn't respond, shouldn't the routing bypass it?

I spoke to the IT guy looking after the website in Germany I was trying to access and he swears there is no problem on his end.

Anyone know, or have an idea, what happened here, especially since the problem continued even after multiple attempts to access that German website?

Sorry, the doubleverify site is not the site I was trying to get to.

The site I wanted to access was https://www.fgb-galerie.de/

What happened is that Firefox could never connect to that site, in the bottom left it kept saying "waiting for that doubleverify.com site"
Obviously that website never responded so I never connected to the site I wanted to go to, the fgb-galerie site.
I assumed the doubleverify site was something set up by the fgb-galerie IT guys, but they tell me no.

So I was wondering if anyone knew what that doubleverify site was doing in the middle of all this.

BTW - Everything worked fine this morning.

Probably something to do with this:
https://www.malwares.com/report/host?host=rtb0.doubleverify.com

PS: I'd suggest you run the MALWAREBYTES FOR MAC app on your Mac:
https://www.malwarebytes.com/mac/

PS: The same MALWAREBYTES FOR MAC app in "free" version works fine, it just doesn't run automatically after the free 30 day trial and a manual run must be instigated.
