Website will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it

If you encounter this error, it is likely because a website is attempting to display another website without the owner's consent. This issue typically arises from a security misconfiguration.

Websites can utilize x-frame options or a content security policy to control whether other websites can embed them. These are essential security tools designed to prevent clickjacking, a type of attack where malicious sites trick users into clicking on something different from what they perceive.

To visit a site that displays this error message, you can right-click the link and select Open Link in New Tab or Open Link in New Window. Alternatively, you can copy and paste the link into an already open new tab or window. However, be aware that the embedding page may not function correctly without access to the blocked content. In such cases, you may need to contact the owner of the problematic site for further assistance.
