If it work not in multiple software the problem is maybe not a bug in wget and uget but firefox maybe save the passwort for this site.

Error 403 could mean anything, so we need more information about your special use case.

Could you call wget with -d and attach the output here ?

Or give us the [link] to test it ourselves.

In some links when I want to download a file such as movie I use "wget [link]" but I face with 403 error,but with my browser I can download that file.Other softwares like Uget have this problem too.If you found a way for downloading such files it will be very good.In the programming view I think you should change connection method
