I am running Firefox 55.0.3 on an iMac El Capitan. I keep getting Access Denied; you don't have permission to access (URL) on this server, for a few sites only (sites I've accessed in the past). I've cleared cookies, cache, and history, I've refreshed Firefox, I've disabled all add-ons/plug-ins/extensions. I've also tried the sites with other browsers (so, yes, I know it's not just Firefox, but I was hoping maybe you could help anyway...) Thank you.

Hi Fred, and thanks. My firewall is turned off. And Norton security was only added in the last few days, so the problem was happening before that. However, you got me thinking. I recently went through a move, and amidst all the chaos, decided to add VPN for security during the transition - hadn't thought about it before - and that turned out to be the issue! With VPN turned off, I can access the sites! So thank you for your help, you got me there. I really appreciate your time and thought!
