I opened it with Safari earlier and have it open now. I had to read the page, indicate I wanted to proceed to the site, and put in my computer password.

Hmm, curiouser and curiouser. The problem could be with my computer, or maybe it's a case of operator error. That wouldn't be a surprise. I can open the link with Firefox, but I just now tried it with Safari and got the same error message.

Angry-Koala, try going to settings on your computer and then go to Safari. Check to see if you have “fraudulent website warning” turned on. That might be the issue.

Works in Brave browser (privacy enhanced version of Chrome). You have to click past the warning page.

Um, if there's a problem with a site, you might not want to enter your password; the site may have been hacked.

And if you did give your password, this may be a good time to change it.

Sure enough, the “fraudulent website warning” is turned on. I'll keep it that way for now, but it's good to know how to get past that screen if I should ever want to.

Good point. I wondered about that. Since it'a a .gov site that only provides information I figured it would be safe, but I'm no expert. It didn't ask me for my password. If it had I would have clicked away and reported the site. I'm guessing here, but perhaps sheerbliss had to provide the password to her(?) computer instead of the website.
