Any attempts to connect to this website result in the following error:

An error (403 Forbidden) has occurred in response to this request.

I gather my IP has been blocked for some reason? Could it be unblocked please.

Over the last few weeks the website has been stalling when loading, making the browser (Firefox 60.4.0esr), non-responsive. Sometimes I get an error telling me a script is stopping the page from responding (or something similar). But it's usually a matter of waiting up to 60 seconds for the page to load.

I'm just trying to access https://www.tomshardware.com homepage.
Starting Firefox with add ons disabled (safe node) does not work.
I do not have tracking protection enabled for this site.
Trying to access it from Internet Explorer likewise fails with a 403 error (This has no add ons at all).
Does Toms now require one to "sign in" to the website before being able to view the homepage? That sounds weird. Someone who doesn't yet have an account would never be able to sign up/register because they'd never be able to get to the site.
Anything off the root of the site seems fine (like https://www.tomshardware.com/forum, https://www.tomshardware.com/follow, https://www.tomshardware.com/community/profile etc)

I'm having the same problem. My note 9 cannot connect using firefox or chrome. Cleared the cache have no adblock installed doesn't matter which state I'm in or if I'm on wifi or not. Home and work PC connect just fine.

This is likely a completely different problem. You should start your own thread to seek assistance with this issue.
