New Firefox gives that error message for some sites that I have accessed for a long time. Unable to get any explanation or details.

This is the complete err msg:

Note: the "support" link does not work. The same err msg is repeated.

One site that produces that err msg is http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/ "WordPress.com - 403 Error" appears in the tab label.

Note: I can't contact the webmaster because Firefox won't let me go there.

I used the link, and had no problem. Monster: Scientists find missing link in Yellowstone plumbing- supervolcano contains enough magma to fill the Grand Canyon

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?
