This is gonna sound stupid but at this point I can't think of anywhere else to go. I simply cannot access imgur.com. I can't load pictures, but I can load .gifs or .gifvs. I cannot view albums. 
All I get is a "err_connection_timed_out" when I try to go there. The same thing happens for any imgur links that are not direct i.imgur image links or .gifs. Any other website I have no issues.
This has been getting worse through last year. I used to be able to do things like delete the https:// on the start of a link and an image that wouldn't load, now would. I could browse albums, and such freely.
This makes using something like using reddit, all but impossible. 
  • The things I have tried to solve this issue are:
  • Reinstalling Chrome
  • Used Googles open DNS
  • Deleted all the imgur related data in the browser
  • Enabled/disabled all of my firewalls and malwarebytes.
  • Reset my modem/router
  • Enabled/disabled all extensions within chrome
  • Tried flipping the links to .filmot links. 
  • Using other browsers such as Firefox/IE with same results.
I am on windows 7 home premium. My internet itself works great, I can stream, play online games, etc. Zero issues. It's strictly imgur.com.
