Please help! I am trying to get onto a specific site and the site is blocked.

It was not blocked when I left, but when I came home, it was blocked.

I live with my parents. I think my stepdad blocked it while i was gone or something.

It says "This website blocked by firegear" when I try to open the page.

The rest of the internet is fine.

I'm not using an apple computer or anything like that.

And I am not techno-literate. I have no idea what to do! :(

You should probably have a talk with your stepdad; maybe he had a reason to block the site?

No one here will tell you how to bypass a site block thats must have been put in for a reason. Talk to your stepdad about why the site was blocked. maybe it was a mistake, but its unlikely.
