    You don't have permission to access "<<website>>" on this server. Safari only.
    I get that error for one particular website in Safari. It just started suddenly today. I tried Brave browser and it can get to the site just fine. I dumped Safari History and used the Develop menu to empty cache. I rebooted the Mac, restarted the browser. I tried a VPN to show up all the way across the country, checked that it was in place with Speedtest.net and got the same message. I uninstalled and deleted my ad blocker, twice, with reboots in between and that made no difference. I did a search for this error and it occurs with all kinds of sites and on both Windows and Macs with a variety of browsers. The only fixes I have seen are all about dumping history (done), empty cache (done), change IP to get off the "blocked" list (done). Considering that Brave can get there but Safari cannot, the issue is not the IP being blocked. It's the same website, all others seem to work fine. It's not the website, as Brave can see it. It's not a DNS problem as Brave works fine. The issue HAS to be in Safari, but getting rid of history and cache make no difference.

    So what else in Safari can I check?

    SOLUTION: I started deleting history from Safari. This time at two days of history deleted, the problem disappeared. Have no idea what happened but the problem is gone.

    I take it you mean that in Safari Preferences, General, Remove History Items, you selected two days? I have mine set to remove history items after one day. For some reason if Safari History items are manually removed it also removes the favcons from bookmarks. Letting Safari do it automatically leaves the favcons in place.

    Yeah, the favicons did disappear, but then reappeared when I opened the menu and the dropdown appeared, so all is good. But what I did was click on "Safari" upper right corner, then "Clear history..." and then "today and yesterday" to pick two days. If that had not worked, I was willing to clear ALL history and live with it. I have it set to delete history after a year. Never changed it, don't really see any reason to do so. Frankly, I'm not sure what is in the "history" other than the URL, but clearly it is something more than just that.
