Did not help - I did notice that I can connect to flipboard.com through Google's Chrome. I do not like to use that browser though because of privacy concerns.

Try some of the other possibilities in this article:

Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can

That didn't help.

I searched for Flipboard through DuckDuckDo (in Firefox) and then clicked on the search results for the website. it works consistently - I can get to the Flipboard website. If I type Flipboard.com in the address bar of Firefox, it gives me the 403 error. At least now I can get it to work in Firefox. Perhaps this information will be useful for a Firefox developer to diagnose and fix the problem.
