Here is a quick guide on how to remove Firefox's error message when trying to access resources on restricted ports, such as port 87:
This address is restricted
This address uses a network port which is normally used for purposes other than Web browsing. Firefox has canceled the request for your protection.
1 Open Firefox's settings: about:config
Open Firefox's preferences by typing the following URL in Firefox:
2 Find the settings network.security.ports.banned.override
In the Filter box, type in
3 Create if not found
If you can't find such a preference, right click to open up the pop-up menu and pick New and then String.
As preference name type
network.security.ports.banned.override and 87 as the value.
Afterwards it should look something like this:
4 Modify if exists, and how to add multiple ports
If such a preference already exists, you can specify multiple ports. Either as a range such as 1-1024 or even combine with a comma separated list such as 87, 150-300, 350, 400, 450-500.
5 Refresh the page
Just refresh the page and you should have no problems accessing the resource.

Thanks. This was annoying when it first started to me just now as it was blocking FTP.
