    I've had something similar in the past, I didn't get "forbidden" as the word. I believe that some sites ban some TOR IPs, then they store a "forbidden" cookie on your system. I solved it be clearing the cookies then accessing without TOR. If you really need TOR, you could try refreshing your identity.

    Hope this helps,

    Click the Tor icon in the system tray and select "New Identity". Maybe a new exit node will allow you. to access the site. But I have gotten that message before by going to a site that no longer exists.
