Forbidden request on index page

If I point Firefox 3.6.3 in windows 7 to page https://www.instructables.com I see error:

403 - Forbidden Request forbidden by administrative rules.

If requested page https://www.instructables.com/index site works great.

I think this problem is connected with 302 redirect to the page https://www.instructables.com/index

I think that this problem related with last changes in website and Firefox, because in same time under IE site work great. It's not problem for me, but perhaps the problem for other users.

. Ibles was experiencing a DOS problem and had to block some addresses. Your address may have been blocked and you need to contact Robot to clear things up.
