How can my website works ok with chrome/opera but shows message "forbidden" from Firefox?

Hello there,
My website works perfecty from Chrome and Opera, but show an error "Forbidden
You don't have permission to access this resource." when accessed from IE and Firefox. Please do you have any idea what is the reason?
Thanks in advance,
JL Simon

I took a look at this error:

You don't have permission to access this resource.

Many times this comes as a result of incorrect permissions. I found a resource on WordPress' site that gives some tips for resolving it:

Forbidden: You don’t have permission to access this resource.

That being said, the odd thing here is that you're not encountering this error on either Chrome or Opera. My first suggestion is to clear your cache on those other browsers to see if that resolves the issue. Mozilla has a page on this:

Mozilla - Forbidden error

I imagine that might be the same fix with Internet Explorer (or Microsoft Edge, if that's what you're using now). Hopefully all it will take is a simple cache-clearing, but if that doesn't work I'd look at the permissions as referenced in the first link I gave.

Thanks for responde. It was a DNS error.
