Todays tech-recipe will teach you how you can add the URL of a website to your browser’s “trusted sites” list. Any website on “trusted websites” record will not have cookies, notifications, or pop-ups blocked by using your browser’s protection settings.

Some websites need permission to open on Firefox browser. If there were found untrusted by Firefox due to reasons like certificate breakdown or corrupt certificate of the website.

I remember I once had issues accessing a website with my Firefox browser. I needed to download a file badly, and the website’s administrator installed some kind of code or plugin that made it impossible to access the website without adding the website to trusted website list.

There was a pop-up that Website admin wanted users to see, but Firefox saw it as a threat and decided to blacklist the website. But, in this case, the website wasn’t really harmful. I spent hours looking for a solution till I found one.
