I run into this at least once a week, on sites that I know are completely legit, including sites that I recently visited successfully. Once it starts happening for a given site, I can't figure out how to get past it and regain access.
I've asked other folks to visit the same sites at the same time, and they can get through. I've tried accessing them on other devices on the same wifi network, and get through just fine. But I can't get to them any more on my main computer.
I've tried clearing cache and deleting cookies and data, and that hasn't helped.
I'm on Windows 10, and (now) Firefox 100.0. I'm in the UK, using Sky internet -- I don't know if that's relevant, but I didn't notice this problem before I moved here (from the US) last year.
As I said, I can still access the sites on another device (an iPad) on the same wifi, so I don't think it's the firewall in my router.
I don't have any antivirus installed -- just using Microsoft Defender. And I'm not using a VPN or anything like that. My browser privacy setting is "Standard"/
The only extensions I have installed are Facebook Container and LastPass.
What can I do to fix this? It's breaking the internet for me.
