Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (HTTP method not allowed.)

I copied the URL and opened it in another tab, everything worked quickly and well.

The 403 isn't VE's fault (probably a bad Varnish server or something else weird happening in our infrastructure), but VE should handle this kind of failure more gracefully than just spinning the spinner forever.
