We had several users report this and we confirmed it. this must have been introduced recently.
after analyzing the logs we found the issue...

If the Long is positive single digit the URL is malformed with a " " (space) before the long...here is the errored URL from debug.log...

Query URL: https://www.rfinder.net/query.php?vers=CH0.4.1&*lon= 0.12776*&radius=90&pass=d79c8788088c2193f0244d8f1f36d2db&lat=51.50735&email=bobofthedeep%40gmail.com

See the space after the lon= ?

If you make the Lon negative the URL looks like this...

Query URL: https://www.rfinder.net/query.php?vers=CH0.4.1&lon=-0.12776&radius=90&pass=d79c8788088c2193f0244d8f1f36d2db&lat=51.50735&email=bobofthedeep%40gmail.com

(this one works)
