Can't get to scribus.net via MS Edge on Win 10

I've just noticed that I can't get into some of the scribus.net sub-domains when using MS Edge on Windows 10.

This works fine:

But these don't work (see screenshot):

They all work fine on Firefox and Chrome, it's just Edge that's complaining. (Other websites I've tried - http and https prefixed - with Edge seem to be fine.)

I don't really want to use Edge, I'm just fault-finding on something else and was wanting to make sure the IE-related stuff on my machine was working properly before delving deeper.

Anyone got any clue what's wrong? Am I going crazy?

I don't know much about Edge, but to me it looks like some kind of DNS problem. Could it be that Edge is using some kind of proxy/filter and thus does not use the same DNS servers as the other browsers?

(I know that when using Firefox though a proxy there is a setting for using DNS though the proxy or through the local machine. I know this just because I have been using Firefox through a putty-tunnel to access my LAN at home, when I wanted to be able to use the local LAN machine names I had to change that setting.)

Thanks for getting back to me Nermander.

It looks like I'll have to start switching things off/on until I make some progress. My Edge installation is as "out of the box" but that doesn't mean that something else hasn't been making changes without my knowledge.

It's not a massive problem for me as I was only looking at it because of another issue but I'm curious that it's happened at all.

I'm still hoping that a regular Edge user will get in touch and say that everything's fine for them. That would mean that the problem is probably just with my set-up rather than it being a Scribus website issue which would be a much bigger problem.

No crazyness on your part. Edge is missing something in the secure connection. Nothis the  "https" in the three that dont work.

I've just gone back and checked and everything seems to be working now and I've no idea why as I've not changed anything. Hmmm.

Thanks anyway.
