Thanks.

"The server understood the request, but is refusing to fulfill it. Authorization will not help and the request SHOULD NOT be repeated."

I think that means "try again" because https://www.farmandfleet.com/ works fine for me.

when you get 403 or 404 or 501 or 502 the first thing to do is delete all your browser history/cache/cookies and by all i mean ALL. browsers nowadays will not completely clean your internet history unless you make sure you select everything. the other thing to try is unplug your router/modem for about 20 seconds

if you still get errors then you could try another DNS

Cleared everything in Firefox, still get 403 forbidden.

Do you have your Firefox updated to the latest and greatest per Linux Mint servers ?
I am on version 63 Mint 1.0.
Am not getting this error on any other sites that I normally go to.
I am thinking that Blain is NOT keeping their website spec up-to-date with the latest changes/version
of Firefox. Am I wrong ? Thanks.

almost forgot i had firefox installed on mint19. i don't use it i keep it for occasions as this one
i get 403 Forbidden with Firefox Quantum 63.0 (64-bit)

i'm not even going to try to figure out why FF blocked access, but is accessible with chrome

I get 403 Forbidden on Firefox, but it loads fine in Waterfox.
