When accessing certain pages on various websites I get, 'Access Denied You don't have permission to access the requested URL on this server. Reference: 18.a7bf2617.1675627515.5e83de8" I do not get this message when using any other browser. i.e. I make no changes to any settings. I have tried to turn off VPN, disable all Firefox entensions, but nothing works. Interestingly, for some websites, the denial may be returned from only some pages within a website. I have no problems with Google Chrome (a browser which I hate to use) Apparently, each time I get an "Access Denied" message, the reference number changes. Credentials Issue??

"You don't have permission to access..." errors are characteristic of a firewall that protects the server against misuse and this firewall thinks something is suspicious about the HTTP request. If you use a proxy or VPN then try to use a direct connection. Select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the others do not work properly.

  • Settings -> General -> Network: Connection -> Settings

You can try to clear the Cache and remove the Cookies for websites that cause problems via the padlock button or via "3-bar" Firefox menu button (Options/Preferences) to see if that fixes it.

I've seen cases where having enabled "Resist Fingerprinting" was causing this issue.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if an extension is causing the problem.

If this all doesn't work then you can try "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history item.
