So I use Firefox (currently Quantum 62.0) and I also use the Grammarly addon for my facebook posts etc. It also worked here in the Petri forum but not any more.
Up until several versions back (pre-Quantum I think so probably version 56 or some such) Grammarly worked AOK but then just stopped. I’ve disabled several addons to see if that impacts it but it makes no difference.
My research led me to the following page on the Grammarly support site:
This basically said to unblock the following:
capi.grammarly.com (ports 80 and 443)
data.grammarly.com (ports 80 and 443)
auth.grammarly.com (ports 80 and 443)
That seemed fairly straightforward until I went to the Mozilla support forum to ask how to do that and got the following response:
I was able (I think, not sure) to add the following:
I couldn’t add any more and certainly couldn’t add the specific things the Grammarly support article suggested so I wondered if any of you guys could offer guidance I’d really appreciate it :)

Another answer from Mozilla forum (allowing multiple ports to be entered in the string):

Another curiosity. This problem is happening on my desktop computer but there’s a new dimension … I was out today and took my laptop with me. That laptop has the same version of Firefox (64bit, Quantum 62) but doesn’t have the problem at all. I even checked it when I got back home (hard network as well as wireless). The only difference is that about:config (on the laptop) doesn’t have the ‘network.security.ports.banned.override’ key at all so why is it working and my desktop installation isn’t?

A guy at Mozilla suggested a new profile which basically solved the problem :)
