If you've ever received a "Fetching Source File" message when trying to view files while playing a challenge, we've got a few things you can try to fix it quickly.
First off, this message can occur for one of two reasons:
- An ad-blocker or a plugin installed on your browser blocks some of our API calls
- Your IT team has blocked files with certain extensions which might explain why you can't view them
To resolve this issue:
- Disable plugins or ad blockers installed on your browser
- If you're having trouble loading files with certain extensions, for example, .sh files, the IT team at your organization can help you unlock these files
Tip: As a quick workaround, you can try to complete the challenge using a different browser
