    Hello everyone
    I've been using StatCounter since more than 10 years. There have always been a difference between the figures obtained through StatCounter and through GoogleAnalytics. StatCounter is consistently around 1.5 greater than GA.
    But suddenly, since last thursday (5 days from now), Statcounter figures are only a fraction of GA figures. Daily pageview have dropped from 700 to 20.
    Does anyone has a clue of what is going on?

    Anyone ?

    I have a trail to follow. The trouble might come from a line I added in .htaccess, the header set Content-Security-Policy. I've added https://statcounter.com and http://c.statcounter.com as sources for javascript. Are those correct ?

    It might be those directives that prevent SC to record the visits. However, I still receive data (110 pages viewed today), so, if it work sometimes, it should work all the time, shouldn't it ?

    I would greatly appreciate any idea on the subject.
    Many thanks in advance.

    Update : On StatCounter, 99% of the visitors are now using IE. Very few Chrome or Firefox. Then, I'm wondering whether there have been an update in Firefox, that would prevent SC stats to work ?
    Any idea would still be appreciated.

    I don't see this. I get by far more visits using Chrome (30-50%), followed by mobile browsers, the Firefox, Safari, while IE end Edge are way down the list.

    I don't understand why you would specify any directives for statcounter.com in your .htaccess file. Those are not your website's own assets.
