Bug Description

Beginning this week the recipe for fetching "Harper's Magazine - articles from printed edition" doesn't work. I reported a similar problem 2019-02-25 which was fixed (Harper's website changed).

I'm using Windows 10 Pro v.1909 64bit, Windows Defender for firewall and antivirus, and Calibre 4.12 (64bit). I run this recipe every 30 days. I've confirmed on their website I am using the correct Username and Password. If I can provide further information or assistance, please advise.

Thank you.

The Baffler no longer works either; I believe they stopped offering free issues.
