I am using the pure vpn addon but which has been working fine but since upgrading toFirefox version 64.0 I can no longer get bbc.co.uk! I can get bbc iplayer and itv hub. Should I revert back to an earlyer version of Firefox? If so, how can I do it?

You will have to use a VPN endpoint that locates you in the UK or disable this service when you want to access the BBC website (bbc.co.uk). When your IP shows that you aren't located in the UK then you will be redirected to the international BBC website (bbc.com). The only way to prevent that is with an IP that locates you in the UK.

Is that what happens your using the VPN? Sometimes the site changes based on your IP address and if it is using the VPN from the USA side it will change accordingly.
