    It's been for a year now that I don't have access to PF! I asked my ISP about this problem but they told me it's not a blocked site in my region I can only open PF via VPN but the speed is usually slow , so I prefer not to surf the net through VPN. I assume the problem is because of "https" but I'm not sure since I have access to other websites like google!

    Hi Lisa, can you be specific? What happens when you try to access?

    After some minutes I receive a "The connection has timed out" error!

    Have you tried other browsers? Cleared their cache and cookies?

    Sometimes I get this, not only with PF but more generally with sites that are usually no problem.
    In my case I think it's caused by a traffic overload, probably within the systems of my ISP.
    I found that this is almost always solved by switching off my router for a couple of minutes then restarting it.
    That mean I get a new IP address, so the routing of packets to me takes a different path, one that is most likely unaffected by whatever the cause of the traffic jam was.

    Yes, I tried everything! :oldfrown:
    Never mind!I think it's my internet provider fault but they don't want to accept.

    Do you traceroute and if the signal dies on their end you have proof.
