I am trying to go to ace hardware site. I get: Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.acehardware.com/store-locator" on this server. Reference #18.26761cb8.1701661935.890df303 .
The search bar reads: https://www.acehardware.com. Why does my Firefox/Mozilla do this? How can I fix it? Help please, Wendyh

"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, 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 (Settings) 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, try "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history item. Note that this removes saved passwords for this website as well.
