No you ain't excluded because browser. Find attached a png of palemoon on my system loading the link above just fine.

These might be connected, and i say this because i do the same thing.

As a first line diagnostic, open a tab in palemoon with the link above, hit F12 and open the network tab in the newly opened interface, then hit F5 to reload the website and see if the network tab indicates any errors.

A spinner getting stuck typically means that the page tried to load something and network or browser-internal processing issues prevented it from being loaded, resulting in an error that's novel to the website.

Depending on what the network tab indicates, ways to redress this are as follows:

1. install to reduce the background load of open tabs
2. ensure your wifi has good connectivity if you're on wifi
3. inspect the network meter of your router, and if you see the outbound line maxed out consistently, debug your network and identify the culprit, as high outbound loads can block downloads
