I have a Mac. Running the Sonoma 14.1.1
I have installed a new version of MusicBrainz. I reinstalled the latest version, and I keep getting the “Could not load…” Upon right-clicking the Red Disc, this action reveals the list, and I choose Info. The popout window shows an error stating “connection refused” in red.
Any ideas what I have done wrong?
I appreciate any help you can provide.
Could be an SSL library issue. If you enable debugging (Help - > View Error/Debug Log, or Command + G) and repeat your steps, what messages are printed?

I suspect you are blocked because your IP is listed on the QNAP blacklist
That’s a long story, but basically QNAP devices are querying our webservice abusively, currently 70% of the incoming traffic is from such devices, but the bad thing is that most users aren’t aware of it, and it doesn’t serve any purpose (users don’t complain at all when we block those queries at http level).
But we are now blocking at IP level, to spare more bandwidth, so only legit and regular users of MusicBrainz having a QNAP device actually complain, and we whitelist them.
The whole story …
I’d contact MetaBrainz directly and give them more details:
Thank you. I responded to the linked thread.
