Browsing protection by F-Secure does not work properly

Since 2022-02-28 I have installed F-Secure Save on my computer..

In addition, I use "Browser protection by F-Secure" for Firefox.

With Firefox I am experiencing two problems since I installed the "Browser protection by F-Secure".

 1. Firefox no longer loads the website "".

    To my knowledge there is no reason to do so.

 2. Some websites including for example this website are not loaded at once.

     Only after pressing the button "refresh the current page" one or more times will the page will load.

What could be going on here?

On my computer I have

F-Secore Save version 18.3

Windows version   21H2 build 19044.1645

Firefox version  : 90.0.1 (64 bits)

    Hi @Firmy,

    Sorry, I'm already using version 99.0.1, didn't mention it correctly!

    As for loading the "" website, I just found out that it's probably because of the Firefox "Always use private browsing mode" option. So if I have it enabled, which I have by default, the "" site won't load, otherwise it will.

    So it is most likely not due to F-Secure's browser security!

    The strange thing stays that in the past I disabled F-Secure's browser protection and then loaded the "" site fine....
