    This is probably not a bug in Privoxy but a side effect of your configuration.

    It looks like the Incapsula snake oil requires the client to accept cookies and execute JavaScript from various sources.

    I find it especially amusing that even the "Why is this happening" page is "protected" and thus doesn't work.

    If you let Privoxy log what's going on as described at:
    http://www.privoxy.org/user-manual/contact.html#CONTACT-BUGS
    you'll probably be able to work around the problem. If you need help with that, please post a log excerpt.

    Before you do that, though, I'd recommend that you ask KDE e.V. if they are aware the problem and if they are sure that they are using the Incapsula nonsense in compliance with the relevant German laws.

    In my opinion the proper solution would be for KDE e.V. to get their websites working without this nonsense.
