Hello @Gajjar_Dharm, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

From the last screenshot that you added there, it looks like you might have set up a "block" rule rather than to allow those domains. The first option is showing "Block a new hostname".

 

Could this be the reason that the website is blocked?

 

Otherwise, when you try visit the website as shown in the second screenshot, can you try entering the password prompted in the bottom left of the page to unlock the site?

 

Let me know how it goes!

Sorry for sending the wrong screenshot .  its the screenshot in which i can access all other websites.   by default i am using this add on in reverse mode.   so which domains i allow .  i can only visit that websites.  my apology. 

for entering the password when i enter the password i can access the website.  but i am planning to deploy this setting in my team,  so they wont have password.    as you can see in the image i have some websites and they are working preety fine without passwords.  
i need to do same for dropbox.com  .......hope i have managed to explain it in the right way..
