8 minute delay for each non-existing Tiktok ID

Input a few dozen TT profile IDs. Getting 0 results after 5 minutes, with a lot of "Failed to wait for the script" errors in the log. Using the latest 0.0.33 build.

It does eventually return results -- i eventually got 28 results in 46 minutes (!)

It seems the issue is there's a 50-60 second timeout for profiles that don't have any content. And then it retries 8 times. This is 8 minutes of wall clock time before it moves on to the next request. This slows down the crawler very significantly if you have user IDs that have been renamed or no longer exist or have typos, etc.

Can we have a setting to not retry, and a bug fix for not having a 60 second timeout for pages that don't exist?
