Adaptive crawler is failing to crawl the start URL

We are seeing the following error logs in some of our Adaptive Crawler runs:

12024-05-28T18:08:45.004Z ERROR AdaptiveCrawler: Request failed and reached maximum retries. mouse.wheel: Execution context was destroyed, most likely because of a navigation.

We recently switched to the Adaptive crawler to avoid having to implement our own "fallback" logic of retrying crawls that failed with the Cheerio HttpCrawler. Oddly, the website from this particular crawl usually succeeds with Cheerio so we're not sure why it's using the AdaptiveCrawler.

Please let us know if there's something on our end we can do to fix this as we'd love to reduce the amount of custom logic and instead rely on the adaptive crawler
